This the assessment process that is used in different forms based on the application of assessment. So, for skills development that is credit / qualification generating, or for Continuous Professional Development related assessments, this is the process that is followed. The role players described will have different names or titles, but the process remains.
When conducted performance reviews or recruitment or Psychometric assessments this process is still followed but perhaps ends at point 6. Either way this process is the foundation of the ECOSystem. The ECOSystem role players are defined from this process, and their roles described and measured.
PHASE 1: Image 2: Phase 1_Process Defined
The learner registers for a qualification / designation / CPD / Job Role analysis. They get added to any technology or registers that the company has.
The learner attends a pre-assessment declaration meeting – that ensures that the user is informed of their rights in the assessment process, and they confirm their agreement to be assessed, what they are being assessed against and that they are happy with their assigned primary assessor.
2. Pre Assessment
2a. If the learner is a Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) candidate, they will skip point 3 and more directly to Point 4.
The learner/employee will be allocated to a learning journey towards achieving their required outcome. (Qualification, CPD, Designation Credits, Job role etc…)
The learning journey can be completed through many different methods (e-learning, MOOCS, games, Classroom training, virtual training etc…) and the Learner/Employee will complete the cognitive and/or interpersonal assessments.
3. Learning Journey
The Portfolio of Evidence (P.o.E.) This is one of the most important steps for the user. They must create a Portfolio demonstrating their competence (knowledge, understanding and skills2) and provide this P.O.E. to the primary assessor for review.
The P.O.E. MUST have the evidence to show the competence of the learner in all relevant modes2, (so Video and Audio becomes essential if the assessor cannot be present in the place of demonstration).
The learner will then do a practical demonstration of skill (psychomotor skills) and create evidence of their application live in the workplace. (Video, audio images etc…)
The Learner loads this evidence into P4P e-P.O.E. folder. Followed by a self-assessment (reflection) on the content and assessment criteria.
