    • The opportunity to provide coaching as part of the assessment process
      Maintaining contact with the students throughout the assessment process
      Continually offering feedback to students on the development of their portfolio
      The assessor
    • Framework project expert
      Ann Morris has been involved in several Framework projects and is currently working with AIM in the Curriculum Development department.
      “What impressed me most in this project was the commitment of those involved to choose online applications and support that met the needs of the participant group.  Often projects become so caught up in the wonder of flexible options available that they lose sight of participants needs and the actual outcome being sought.  Managing the collection of evidence in an online environment was challenging but the project team were innovative in actually defining evidence and working within the restriction of having to maintain consistency between paper based and online assessment for the client groups”.
