Award in Understanding


L3 Award in Understanding the Principles and Practices of Assessment

Overview & Objective:

The NOCN Level 3 Award in Understanding the Principles and Practices of
Assessment is for those who wish to gain an understanding of the principles and practice of assessment without any need to practice as assessors.

Entry Requirements:

Learners undertaking the units titled Understanding the principles and practices of assessment do not have to be assessing or internally quality assuring learner work.

Guidance on Assessment:

The qualifications require achievement of the specified units with no further requirements for additional/summative assessment. Achievement is therefore determined by successful completion of unit assessment. The assessment process is as follows:
– Assessment should be holistic and include appropriate links across a unit and/or with other units.
– Assessments are internally set at the Centre by assessors, and pre-verified and approved by the internal quality assurer against the requirements detailed in the assessment criteria of the unit
– The learners are assessed internally at the Centre, using the assessments set
– The resulting portfolios of assessed evidence are internally quality assured by an internal quality assurer at the Centre
– The portfolios of assessed evidence are externally quality assured by an external quality assurer appointed by NOCN.

Progression Opportunities::

The NOCN Assessor qualifications and Internal Quality Assurance qualifications enable progression to employment, further learning opportunities within employment or further study.

Learners can progress from the assessor to the internal quality assurance role and if appropriate, over time, the external quality assurance role. Learners may also wish to add these qualifications to their teaching qualifications and/or Learning and Development qualifications.
