    • RARPA Recognising and Recording Progress and Achievement in non-accredited learning
    • Focus on and promote the needs and interests of learners; Take account of learners’ diverse and sometimes multiple purposes in learning; Allow for negotiation of the content and outcomes of learning programmes Encourage learners to reflect on and recognise their own progress and achievement, thus increasing their confidence; The staged process has been designed to:
    • The staged process has been designed to: Promote and support informed learner self-assessment, peer assessment and dialogue about learning and achievement between learners and tutors/trainers; Enable both the achievement of planned learning objectives and learning outcomes not specified at the outset to be recognised and valued; Promote good practice in teaching, learning and assessment Enhance providers’ quality assurance and improvement practices.
    • The RARPA staged process comprises five elements:
      • Aims appropriate to an individual learner or groups of learners
      • Initial assessment to establish the learner’s starting point
      • Identification of appropriately challenging learning objectives
      • Recognition and recording of progress and achievement during programme (formative assessment)
      • End of programme learner self-assessment; tutor summative assessment; review of overall progress and achievement.
    • Clearly stated aims
      • For the programme/learning activity
        • Clear simple course outlines/descriptors
        • Easily understood intended learning outcomes
        • Information on resources needed (if any)‏
        • Information on any pre-requisites for participation in the programme
        • How you will know what you have learned
      • Record of outcomes of process of establishing learners’ starting points
      • Previous knowledge and experience
      • Limiting factors or inhibitions
      • Practical support needs
      • Personal aspects of why the learner is there and concerns they may have
      Initial Assessment
      • Clearly stated and suitably challenging objectives for all programmes and, wherever feasible, individually
      • In addition to the learning aim the learner may have their own goals and reasons – the tutor needs to be aware of these to make the learning effective
      • Additional ‘soft’ outcomes around increased confidence, social skills, personal goals.
      Individual Challenging Goals
      • Records of learner self-assessment, group and peer assessment, tutor records of assessment activities and individual or group progress and achievement.
      • Learners’ files, journals, diaries, portfolios, artwork,
      • Videos, audiotapes, performances, exhibitions
      • Displays, individual or group learner testimony,
      • Artefacts, photographs and other forms of evidence
      Formative Assessment and Feedback: Evidence
      • Learner’s self assessment
      • Tutor assessment
      • Peer reviews
      • Group reviews
      • Joint reviews
      • Learner satisfaction outcomes
      • Other information that can be collected
      Summative Assessment
    • Quality Assurance
      • Learners’ outcomes
      • End of programme/activity review
      • Self Assessment
      • Quality improvement actions
      • The common inspection framework
      • Inspection
