This 20 credit masters-level module will teach you about ensuring the fair and safe assessment of the practice capability of adult learners. Critical reflection on power relationships in practice and the importance of self-awareness will underpin informed use of a wide range of knowledge, tools and frameworks for assessment.
Through discussion, group activities, reading and seminar presentations you will:
- develop a critical capacity to judge a learner’s
performance in practice using appropriate evidence and grounded in shared and
recorded agreements for assessment.
- use research, policies and literature to critically
analyse your own performance and ongoing development as an assessor.
- develop confident, reflective and proficient practice assessors capable of maintaining professional values in all areas.
