Principles of good assessment Definition
« on: August 08, 2015, 02:38:29 PM »
The ETDQA expects all those responsible for its assessment processes to be guided by the following SAQA equation illustrating the importance of the principles of good assessment:

FAIRNESS + VALIDITY + RELIABILITY + PRACTICABILITY = CREDIBILITY

The critical overriding principle of assessment is that of ethics: because the results of assessment can lead to an increase in pay, improved career prospects and the like, the principles of assessment should be applied ethically and responsibly.

„Criteria and Guidelines for the Assessment of NQF Registered Unit standards and Qualifications‟ (SAQA, 2000)

The universal assessment principles of fairness, validity, reliability and practicability form the foundation of the ETDQA assessment policy and underpin its accreditation, evaluation, monitoring, verification and certification processes.

Fairness relates mainly to the assessment process. Validity relates mainly to the assessment design. Reliability relates mainly to the conduct of the assessment. And practicability relates mainly to the financial and time implications of assessment.
