Current knowledge and experience

The practice assessor’s knowledge and experience should enable them to make objective, evidence based assessments of the student’s achievement in practice, for the period they are assigned to them.

What this means will depend on a number of different factors including the student’s learning outcomes, their stage of learning, and whether or not the practice assessor is assessing a placement or a series of placements.

It’s the AEI’s responsibility, with its practice learning partners, to determine what this might mean, provided they can show that public protection is upheld and student assessments are fair and evidenced based.
