Managing Internal Assessment Summative Assessment All HND qualifications

Managing Internal Assessment Summative Assessment All HND qualifications are summatively assessed using a mix of continuous Unit assessment and Graded Unit assessments Summative assessment is carried out for the purpose of certification, and provides evidence that the student can meet the standards set out in the Unit Specification.

SQA ASPs SQA commits to provide an ASP for each mandatory unit New assessment ASPs only provided if unit specification changes SQA not resourced to produce annual banks of ASPs SQA ASPs

Assessment instruments become out of date Assessment instruments are used year after year Solutions become out of date No re-assessment instrument Writing Assessments Centres may wish to write their own assessment instruments Send for prior verification

Use the Unit Specification Assessment activities student shows they can complete a task on a pc student gives written answers to questions based on a case study student answers questions in

writing student makes a presentation Be guided by the Unit Specification and current ASP student completes calculations

student completes a written project student makes something The principles of assessment VALIDITY Does it measure what it says it

should measure? Think about the type of assessment you use The principles of assessment AUTHENTICITY Does it measure the knowledge/skills

understanding of the student? When is an assessment authentic? A Unit specification calls for primary and secondary research from students and their own analysis of the research evidence they gathered. The assessment requires the students to source the research of several

recognised academics and to use materials from other sources to reach conclusions about a given subject The assessment requires the students to create, issue and analyse questionnaires and to use

materials from other sources to reach conclusions about a given subject The principles of assessment RELIABILITY Would this assessment produce the same outcome every time it

is used? Which of the following impacts on an assessments reliability? The Unit Specification calls for open book but the assessment is closed book The assessment solution/marking guidance asks assessors to use their own judgment when making decisions An assessment that will be delivered under

closed book supervised conditions has no time limit for completion specified The principles of assessment CURRENCY Is the evidence up to date and reflecting current practice?

The principles of assessment SUFFICIENCY Does the evidence reflect the Unit/Qualification standards When might assessments not produce sufficient evidence?

Not all the knowledge specified in the Unit evidence requirements is assessed All the knowledge/skills have been evidenced but the level of demand in the assessment was lower than defined in the Unit specification Where it is a reassessment the assessment is not sufficiently different from the original assessment The principles of assessment VALIDITY

Does it measure what it says it should measure? AUTHENTICITY Does it measure the knowledge/skills understanding of the student? RELIABILITY

Would this assessment produce the same outcome every time it is used? SUFFICIENCY Does the evidence reflect the Unit/Qualification standards More Guidance SQA Guide to Assessment

CURRENCY Is the evidence up to date and reflecting current practice? The Unit Specification Watch the verb

SQA Guide to Assessment provides an explanation of what candidates are expected to do for each verb As well as being useful for designing assessments, this can be given to students. Writing an assessment Your Checklist Have the up to date US beside you at all times

Break each outcome down using the US evidence requirements Read the evidence requirements carefully check where it states X and Y as opposed to X or Y Prepare an activity that enables students to produce the required evidence and will allow the assessor to measure their performance Check the assessment covers all of the US requirements Prepare a marking guideline, including any guidance notes and solutions Have a colleague check it before internal verification if possible
