This module explores student assessment in workplace learning. In this module we present assessment as an ongoing, iterative process that occurs before, during and after student placements. This continuous process is best served by sufficient planning and preparation before placement, thoughtful engagement with a range of assessment activities during placement and reflective critique following placement.
This module is constructed around a model designed to illuminate the cyclical nature of workplace learning assessment. This model "Student assessment in WPL" identifies nine primary tasks associated with the three phases of WPL with
Dark Red representing Before
Green representing During and
Purple representing After
Understanding the key aspects of each of these phases can enhance workplace learning assessment experiences for both educators and students.
As you move through the module you will be provided with reflective prompts to deepen your engagement with the material presented. You may like to use a reflective diary to record your thoughts, reactions and plans for future placements. If so a reflective diary can be downloaded from the Reflective Diary link below.
We would appreciate you taking a few minutes to complete a short evaluation of this module to enable ongoing enhancement for future participants.
