“Exploring the Challenge of Consistency ” is the second Work-based Assessment (WBA) webinar brought to you by the National Forum and partner, QQI. During the first webinar some main key challenges were identified by the participants, i.e. consistency/reliability, feedback, authenticity. The most common theme identified was consistency and reliability in the work experience context.
This webinar from the WBA partnership explores what is meant by the term ‘consistency’ in work-based assessment. It examines if the causes of inconsistency differ in the varied placement contexts. Attendees also explore what are student experiences of consistency and also considers how the sector addresses the area of consistency going forward, initial thoughts.
