Evaluation & Assessment Advice to Candidates Candidates should clearly show how they intend to make use of formative assessment during their course to monitor learners’ progress, and how the results of this formative assessment might be used to adapt the course content and/or approach. Neil McMahon Delta 3
Evaluation & Assessment Advice to Candidates It is important that candidates clearly indicate what will be tested when during their course, and that they show how each individual test relates to an overall framework. Sample tests should be  included in the appendix. Neil McMahon Delta 3
Evaluation & Assessment Advice to Candidates Candidates are expected to explicitly refer to principles of assessment with reference to terminology and sources as appropriate, and to show clearly how this understanding has influenced their choice of assessment procedures. Neil McMahon Delta 3
Evaluation & Assessment Advice to Candidates Some candidates, particularly those who choose the specialism ‘Teaching Exam Classes’, simply justify their assessment procedures by using exam practice tests for example. In such cases it is not sufficient to state that Examination Board tests for the exam under discussion are valid and reliable. Further depth of justification is required. Neil McMahon Delta 3
Evaluation & Assessment Advice to Candidates Candidates are also expected to indicate, with reference to the literature, how they intend to evaluate their course formatively and summatively. Neil McMahon Delta 3
