Careerforce is reviewing its Consent and Moderation Requirements (CMR 24, CMR 4, and CMR 222). 

Here are the main changes. 

Industry or sector-specific requirements for Consent to Assess

  • Criterion 3 – Staff selection, appraisal and development
    The proposed changes relate to staff engaged in training and assessment.
  • Criterion 6 – Off-site practical or work-based components
    The proposed changes relate mainly to safety, and the availability of equipment and resources when off-site facilities or resources are to be used for training and assessment.
  • Criterion 7 – Assessment
    The proposed changes relate to pre-assessment moderation of assessment materials and the availability of learners’ evidence for post-assessment moderation.
  • Criterion 8 – Reporting
    A new requirement has been added.


Moderation Requirements

  • Pre-assessment moderation
    Careerforce will charge for pre-assessment moderation of non-unit standard assessments against graduate outcomes.
  • Post-assessment moderation
    There is a proposed change to requirements plus a new section on action taken if
    organisations with consent to assess are found to have conducted assessments using assessment materials that have not first been approved by Careerforce through pre-assessment moderation.  Also changes to materials required for post-assessment moderation.
  • Funding
    This section has been amended
  • Appeals
    Details of the appeals process have been amended.
