Integrated Assessment Definition
« on: August 08, 2015, 02:35:38 PM »
Like SAQA, the ETDQA is encouraging providers to move towards increasingly integrated assessment practices, but fully integrated assessment has not yet been included in the minimum requirements for accreditation.
Integrated assessment should assess the ability to combine key foundational, practical and reflexive competencies with some critical cross field outcomes and apply these in a practical context for a defined purpose.
Integrated assessment at a qualification level must provide opportunities for learners to show that they are able to integrate concepts, ideas and actions across unit standards to achieve competence that is clearly linked to the purpose of the qualification.

When designing an integrated assessment, it is important to:
 design a task which demands the application of theory, knowledge and skills and the ability to reflect on the process and outcome
 design an assessment task which can generate evidence of competence related to several unit standards or large „chunks‟ of meaningful learning
 avoid using many small assessment tasks which may assess trivial and insignificant fragments of skills or knowledge
 use a range of assessment methods and instruments across the tasks you design to assess one qualification or unit standard
 plan for the collection and evaluation of naturally occurring evidence especially in the case of evidence of work experience or competence in the workplace (design logbooks or journals)
 plan to acquire and include evidence from available sources (supervisors, testimonials, portfolios of work previously done) and do not duplicate by re-assessing outcomes where evidence already exists
 focus, for a final integrated assessment with respect to a qualification, on the purpose of the qualification and what selected evidence would demonstrate competence in performing the occupation named in the qualification.
