    In essence, integrated assessment provides learners with an opportunity to display an ability to integrate practical performance, actions, concepts and theory across Unit Standard to achieve competence in relation to the purpose of this Qualification.

    In particular assessors should check that the learner is able to demonstrate the ability to consider a range of options and make decisions about:
  • The quality of the observed practical performance as well as the theory and underpinning knowledge behind it.
  • The different methods that can be used by the learner to display thinking and decision making in the demonstration of practical performance.
  • Reflexive competencies

    In particular assessors should check that the learner is able to demonstrate the ability to consider a range of options and make decisions about:
  • The quality of the observed practical performance as well as the theory and underpinning knowledge behind it.
  • The different methods that can be used by the learner to display thinking and decision making in the demonstration of practical performance.
  • Reflexive competencies

    Assessment Principles
    Assessment should be in accordance with the following general and specific principles:
    a. The initial assessment activities should focus on gathering evidence in terms of the main outcomes expressed in the titles of the unit standards to ensure assessment is integrated rather than fragmented. Where assessment at title level is unmanageable, focus assessment on each specific outcome, or groups of specific outcomes, taking into special note of the need for integrated assessment.

    b. Evidence must be gathered across the entire range specified in each unit standard, as applicable. Assessment activities should enable candidates to display an ability to integrate practical performance, actions, concepts and theory across Unit Standard. Where simulations or role-plays are used, there should be supporting evidence to prove that the candidate is able to perform to the required standard in the real work -related situation.

    c. Formative assessments conducted during the learning process may consist of written tests, demonstrations and self-assessments. The purpose of formative assessment is to diagnose learner strengths and weaknesses and to determine readiness for summative assessment.

    d. Summative assessment may consist of written tests and accompanying assignments, case studies and practical demonstrations. Summative assessments would only be conducted once the learner has indicated that he/she is ready to undergo summative assessment.

    e. All assessments should be conducted in accordance with the following universally accepted principles of assessment:
  • Use appropriate, fair and manageable methods that are integrated into real work -related or learning situations;
  • Judge evidence on the basis of its validity, currency, authenticity and sufficiency; and
  • Ensure assessment processes are systematic, open and consistent.

    This information shows the current accreditations (i.e. those not past their accreditation end dates), and is the most complete record available to SAQA as of today. Some Primary or Delegated Quality Assurance Functionaries have a lag in their recording systems for provider accreditation, in turn leading to a lag in notifying SAQA of all the providers that they have accredited to offer qualifications and unit standards, as well as any extensions to accreditation end dates. The relevant Primary or Delegated Quality Assurance Functionary should be notified if a record appears to be missing from here.
