This textbook provides you with all the up-to-date information you need to pass first time, since it focuses systematically on each of the assessment criteria in the unit. As a lecturer / trainer / tutor / assessor / curriculum manager, how do you ensure: 1. that all staff are clear about the type and methods of assessment available and how to adjust them to meet the needs of individual learners? 2. that learners are involved effectively in the assessment process and take responsibility for their own learning? 3. that the role and use of constructive feedback is understood and applied effectively and meets individual learners’ needs? and 4. that staff are fully aware of the requirement to keep records of assessment and its implications for the continued success of the learning provider? This textbook addresses each of these questions, with supporting research as needed, while remaining tightly focused on the unit’s assessment criteria. Whether you are delivering training or lectures to 16-18 year-olds, mature learners, professionals, managers or international students, with a range of learning and assessment needs and barriers to learning, this book will prove useful in preparing you not only for your unit assessment, but also for work in the sector. Most importantly, the book adopts a practical approach, which is supported by evidence and, where relevant, cross-referenced to Ofsted and QAA expectations. It is therefore suitable for those intending to enter teaching and training as well as those already involved in delivering or managing a programme. Understanding Assessment in Education and Training is the third book in the Award in Education and Training series and covers each aspect of the Award in Education and Training (AET) unit of the same name. Like the first two books on Understanding Roles, Responsibilities and Relationships in Education and Training and Understanding and Using Inclusive Teaching and Learning Approaches in Education and Training, this book is mapped directly to each of the learning outcomes and assessment criteria for the unit across all awarding organisations. It provides detailed practical explanation and links to various other resources so that whether you are new to teaching or already in a teaching or related role, there will be a detailed examination of approaches to assessment in education and training. People purchasing this book may find it useful to have a copy of the second book in the series (Understanding and Using Inclusive Teaching and Learning Approaches in Education and Training) as background. Books available in the Award in Education and Training series: 1. Understanding Roles, Responsibilities and Relationships in Education and Training (Book 1) 2.
