Release 1

This unit of competency first released with TAE Training and Education Training Package Version 1.0.

Application

This unit describes the skills and knowledge required to design and implement a process to assess the language, literacy and numeracy skills of prospective adult learners.

The unit prepares a practitioner to carry out initial assessments in workplace, training organisation and community contexts, and to maintain knowledge of current provision and requirements in the vocational education and training (VET) sector.

No licensing, legislative or certification requirements apply to this unit at the time of publication.

Unit Sector

Language, literacy and numeracy practice

Elements and Performance Criteria

Elements 

Elements describe the essential outcomes

Performance Criteria 

Performance criteria describe the performance needed to demonstrate achievement of the element.

1. Design a pre-training assessment process to analyse adult language, literacy and numeracy skills

1.1 Design assessment process based on a validated assessment framework

1.2 Contextualise assessment process within organisational, policy and legislative framework and program funding profile

1.3 Create pre-training assessment kit that provides opportunity for candidates to demonstrate their range of language, literacy and numeracy skills

1.4 Select location for the assessment that meets the needs of candidate and assessor

2. Conduct the assessment

2.1 Clarify assessment process with candidate, including context and purpose

2.2 Note and record conditions of assessment

2.3 Tailor assessment process to meet individual needs of candidate, particular context and requirements of assessment

2.4 Select and use questioning and self-assessment strategies to assess oral communication and learning

2.5 Select and use range of reading and writing tasks for assessment purposes

2.6 Select and use range of numeracy tasks for assessment purposes

3. Analyse data to establish candidate’s language, literacy and numeracy skills

3.1 Compare responses to interview questions with benchmarks in relevant frameworks to analyse oral communication and learning

3.2 Compare responses to reading material with text features and performance strategies to analyse reading skills

3.3 Compare samples of candidate’s writing with text features and performance strategies to analyse writing skills

3.4 Compare responses to numeracy tasks with numeracy features and performance strategies to analyse numeracy skills

4. Provide effective advice on suitable program options

4.1 Provide feedback to candidate on assessment outcomes emphasising strengths and positive strategies

4.2 Apply current knowledge of VET provision in discussions with candidate

4.3 Apply current knowledge of options suiting specific needs of candidate when discussing future options for skill development

5. Report outcome of assessment

5.1 Maintain records of assessment process, evidence collected and outcome according to policies and procedures of the training organisation and/or funding body

5.2 Report outcome of assessment process to relevant parties in required format and manner and in line with confidentiality requirements

6. Evaluate the assessment process

6.1 Collect feedback on the pre-training assessment process from relevant parties

6.2 Improve assessment processes in response to evaluation

Release 1

This unit of competency first released with TAE Training and Education Training Package Version 1.0.

Performance Evidence

Evidence of the ability to:

  • design and develop a pre-training assessment process that includes sufficient tasks, contextualised to the needs of the learner group, to assess the five Australian Core Skills Framework (ACSF) core skills across a minimum of 3 ACSF levels, and is informed by:
  • organisational, policy and legislative framework and program funding profiles
  • delivery context
  • learner profiles
  • conduct a pre-training assessment, ensuring that the candidate is clear about the context and purpose of assessment
  • analyse assessment outcome evidence of the learner’s skills through comparison with selected benchmarks
  • provide feedback to candidates about their assessment outcomes and their future options for language, literacy and numeracy skill development
  • develop and use templates to record assessment process and outcomes and any information required to fulfil policies and procedures of the training organisation or funding body
  • collect feedback from relevant parties on the assessment process and document changes made as a result.

Note: If a specific volume or frequency is not stated, then evidence must be provided at least once.

Knowledge Evidence

To complete the unit requirements safely and effectively, the individual must:

  • explain how social, psychological, physical and cultural factors; codes of practice and national standards; and features of the delivery context are taken into account in the design of a pre-training assessment process
  • explain how variables the following variables interact to determine the level of difficulty of language, literacy and numeracy tasks:
  • familiarity of context
  • length and complexity of text language and structure
  • degree of inference the reader is required to make or how explicit a text is
  • extent of support required to respond to a text
  • explain the range of provision in the VET sector available to meet candidate learning needs.

Assessment Conditions

Gather evidence to demonstrate consistent performance in conditions that are safe and replicate the workplace. Conditions must be typical of those experienced in the language, literacy and numeracy practice field of work and include access to:

  • opportunities to participate in a range of practical exercises and projects
  • Training Package unit or other relevant standard
  • recording or reporting forms
  • special purpose tools, equipment, materials and industry software packages.

Assessors must satisfy NVR/AQTF assessor requirements.
