Term2.png WORKPLACE ASSESSMENT
A formal system of assessing workers competence in their job role, against competence standards. The workplace assessor collects evidence from the employee, observing the performance, examining a portfolio of evidence prepared by the applicant, questioning the candidate about his knowledge and experience, and judging whether he is competent to carry out a certain task. The assessor records the evaluation in the competence assessment checklist and provides an overall summary and recommendation regarding the candidate’s readiness. The way to collect evidence is listed in the assessment methods of the organization. Employees are involved in the development of workplace assessment tools, and they need to be fully aware and informed of the assessment process, which needs to be fair, appropriate and non-threatening. The decisions are based on the evidence collected. [1] See also: Workplace Learning
