The trainer and assessor who delivered/assessed the training product being validated: Validation helps ensure that your RTO’s training and assessment practices are relevant to the needs of industry.People who have current skills, knowledge and experience in the vocational area can provide input on: Your RTO will need to develop a schedule to validate each training product (AQF qualification, skill set, unit of competency, accredited short course and module) on its scope of registration.Validation is a quality review process that confirms your RTO’s assessment system can consistently produce valid assessment judgements.A valid assessment judgement is one that confirms a learner holds all of the knowledge and skills described in a training product.Validation activities are generally conducted after assessment is complete—so that an RTO can consider the validity of both assessment practices and judgements.Validation involves checking that your assessment tools have produced valid, reliable, sufficient, current and authentic evidence—evidence that allows your RTO to make reasonable judgements about whether training product requirements have been met.Should this occur, you may: Your validation plan must clarify how you will document and act on validation outcomes.For example, an assessment validation checklist addressing the principles of assessment and rules of evidence may be utilised to document the validation outcomes.
A statistically valid sample is one that is: If you are validating a qualification, validate the assessment practices and judgements from a sample of the units of competency within that qualification.A validation schedule is a five year plan; each training product must be reviewed at least once in that five-year period.At least 50 per cent of the training products must be validated in the first three years of the schedule.At least two units of competency should be sampled when validating a qualification.
You may expand the number of units to validate at any time during the validation process, particularly when validation outcomes indicate that assessment judgments are not valid.
When developing your validation schedule, consider areas ASQA has identified as ‘high-risk’. Your validation schedule must reflect your current scope of registration.
