1. What’s included in an assessment pack?

For each unit, you get a Student Assessment Pack and a Trainer Assessment Pack.

These contain:

1 x Student Assessment Pack including:

  • Instructions to students
  • Tasks meeting all requirements of the unit of competency
  • Task outcome pages
  • Unit outcome page

1 x Trainer Pack including:

  • Trainer/Assessor User Guide
  • Instructions to Assessors
  • Sample Answers for all questions
  • Completed Unit Mapping guide
  • Validation template
  • Class Assessment Tracking Template

 

2. How much do your assessment packs cost?

Our packs are not only much cheaper than other resource developers, they’re even cheaper than if you develop the tasks yourself!

Our prices vary according to the size of each order. Contact us today to view our products and get a quote based on your needs.

 

3. Does the RTO own the resources?

Resources are licensed to RTOs according to terms and conditions stated within a Licence Agreement. The term of our Licence Agreement covers the accreditation period (until 31 December, 2023).  This is required to be signed by both parties prior to receipt of any resource. The Licence Agreement allows for editing and contextualising tasks within certain conditions. We’re more than happy to send you the Licence Agreement for review, just ask!

 

4. Are the assessment tasks able to be contextualised?

Yes. Tasks are provided in PDF and Microsoft Word format. You can adapt/contextualise the tasks and resources according to your needs within the terms of the Licence Agreement. Any assistance required with formatting issues associated with Microsoft Word will be charged at an hourly rate.

 

5. What if tasks don’t meet verification by an auditor/verifier?

We are confident of the validity of our assessment tasks. All tasks are provided with a thorough mapping against ACSF criteria and unit requirements. Of course, due to the ambiguity of ACSF and unit requirements, coupled with the subjective nature of the verification and auditing process, it is always possible that a government appointment verifier or auditor may have a different interpretation of the requirements. If Linda Wyse and Associates or a government appointed auditor (VRQA, ASQA) request alterations to any task, Connect will update the task free-of-charge up until the end of 2020.

 

6. Do you have resources for courses other than EAL Frameworks?

We specialise solely in EAL training and assessment resources. This means that we have a thorough understanding of EAL curriculum, EAL training and its students. Our resources are designed not only to assess competencies, but also to support learning!

Let us know if there is an EAL curriculum that you would like training or assessment resources developed for. We’d love to hear about your needs!
