Assessment overview

This assessment guide includes all your tasks to complete the CHCDIV002 Promote Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander cultural safety unit.

Formative assessment

During the workshops, there will be opportunities for you to receive feedback from your trainer on how you are progressing in relation to the course requirements. Your trainer may ask you questions or observe how you complete tasks and then give you feedback that helps you understand what is required.  This is called ‘formative assessment’.

Within the course, formative assessment will occur during the workshop activities and simulation tasks.  

Principles of assessment

  • Validity:

Each task has been mapped to unit of competency requirements. 

Assessment tasks are varied and are required to be completed over a period of time and, where required, on a number of occasions. Practical observations provide opportunities for Learners to demonstrate both knowledge and skills.

  • Reliability:

Each assessment task has been developed to ensure accuracy and consistency in the assessment decision-making process. Evidence presented for assessment is consistently interpreted and assessment results are comparable irrespective of the assessor conducting the assessment.

  • Flexibility:

A range of assessment methods are provided that are relevant to the unit’s context and appropriate for learner’s needs.

  • Fairness:

The individual learner’s needs are considered in the assessment process. Learners are required to discuss with trainers/assessors if they have any special needs or considerations that may affect their ability to complete the assessments. Any reasonable adjustments that are required to be made to these assessments must be noted in the assessment summary at the end of this guide.

Learners are provided with information about the appeals process at the end of this assessment guide.
