    Integrated Assessment

    The unit standards on which this qualification is based, describe the competent performance in the various areas of Wood Products Processing, and lay down the criteria by which competence should be judged, as well as the range of circumstances in which competence should be demonstrated. For each unit standard there are corresponding performance assessment criteria, which describe the evidence an assessor should use to determine a learner's competence.

    Assessors should design assessment tools and conduct assessment against the unit standards specified in the qualification, that take into account established assessment principles and makes use of a range of formative and summative assessment methods. Integrated assessment methods and tools for this qualification must allow the learner to demonstrate that he/she has acquired the knowledge of and can safely and efficiently apply competence in the relevant aspects of Wood Products Processing, as described in the Purpose of this Qualification, and the Exit-level Outcomes. A portfolio of evidence of the outcomes of all these assessments for each learner must be built up for record purposes.

    Assessors should specifically check for the following:
  • Demonstration of competence of the specific outcomes in context. The context is within a Wood Products Processing environment.
  • Ability to ensure the efficient and effective utilisation of all materials, tools and equipment.
  • Ability to manage production processes
  • Ability to manage staff

    The following formative and summative assessment methods are recommended:
  • Observation
  • Oral questioning
  • Simulation
  • Demonstration and questioning
  • Peer assessment
  • Pen and Paper

    Written Statements from e.g. current or previous employer, colleagues, peers, managers, i.e. persons who can supply relevant references
  • Relevant awards or certificates
  • Previous assessment records
  • Journals/logbook, records of work performance.

    The currently unemployed, who followed a learning programme to achieve this qualification, as well as persons seeking recognition of prior learning, must be assessed in the same manner. 

  • INTERNATIONAL COMPARABILITY 
    Comparisons were done against unit standards and in the New Zealand and Australians Qualifications Authority. Our search discovered that there are currently no national qualifications at the lower levels of Wood Product and Processing. However, comparable unit standards were found at levels 1 to 4 in most of the Wood Products Processing areas. Research found that unit standards allow the learner to choose elective unit standards in domains that are comparable to what is required for this qualification.

    Furthermore, various Websites were investigated for relevant information on training and development best practice in Global Wood Products and Processing, the outcome was found that South Africa had a practice that could serve as a benchmark to the whole of the Wood Products and Processing World. 

    ARTICULATION OPTIONS 
    The choice of elective unit standards for this qualification, can earn credits, which will be valid for learning pathways in the Wood Products sector.

    This qualification allows the learner flexibility and portability in that the fundamental and industry specific core unit standards will provide a platform for the learner to cross over into one of the other areas of Wood Products other than his/her elective. The fundamental and non-industry specific core unit standards will also equip the learner with credits which will be useful in other fields of learning should the learner wish to pursue a complete change of industry at a later stage. 

    MODERATION OPTIONS 
  • Anyone assessing a learner or moderating the assessment of a learner against this Qualification must be registered as an assessor with the relevant ETQA.
  • Any institution offering learning that will enable the achievement of this Qualification must be accredited as a provider with the relevant ETQA.
  • Assessment and moderation of assessment will be overseen by the relevant ETQA according to the ETQAs policies and guidelines for assessment and moderation; in terms of agreements reached around assessment and moderation between ETQAs (including professional bodies); and in terms of the moderation guideline detailed immediately below.
  • Moderation must include both internal and external moderation of assessments at exit points of the qualification, unless ETQA policies specify otherwise. Moderation should also encompass achievement of the competence described both in individual unit standards as well as the integrated competence described in the qualification.

    Anyone wishing to be assessed against this Qualification may apply to be assessed by any assessment agency, assessor or provider institution that is accredited by the relevant ETQA. 

  • CRITERIA FOR THE REGISTRATION OF ASSESSORS

    Notes to assessors

    In order to ensure that judgements are reliable, assessors should collect evidence from a variety of sources and in a number of ways, for example, direct observation, role-plays and simulations, interviews, review of portfolios of work, testimonies from third parties, and formal written, oral or skills tests. Where possible, assessment of performance should be carried out in authentic situations and in an integrated fashion, enabling the simultaneous assessment of multiple specific outcomes and assessment criteria. So, for example, by observing the candidate during the course of preparing and implementing an environmental learning programme, the assessor will be able to assess not only his/her competence as an environmental education practitioner, but also his/her organisational, administrative and teamwork abilities. Furthermore, by observing how the candidate undertakes a community conservation programme, the assessor will be able to gauge how well the candidate understands the particular issue and related environmental concepts and processes.

    The specific outcomes and assessment criteria contained in the unit standards are guidelines for assessors working with practitioners who do not have disabilities or special needs. Special consideration and exemptions should be given to practitioners who cannot fulfil the assessment criteria due to disabilities or other special needs.
