About the course

What can I expect out of this qualification?

The aim of this micro-credential is to provide students with the opportunity to learn about the use of appropriate assessments and follow guidelines for both conducting and marking assessments. Students will also learn how to provide useful and positive feedback to learners, and to review their own performance to ensure they use best practice in conducting assessments.

The target learner market will be both international [onshore] and domestic students. These will be people who need to obtain US4098 to be able to become qualified assessors, whether in educational settings or for work-based training.
