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.
- 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.
This section has been amended
Details of the appeals process have been amended.
If your organisation wishes to provide feedback on the proposed draft, please reply to ProductFeedback@Careerforce.org.nz before close of business 23 August 2019.
