TAEASS502 Assessment tool now available

A good day out!

If ever there was a time to say a heartfelt ‘thank you’, now is that time!  Many thanks to the 18 people (from 12 RTOs) who helped me validate the draft of a new assessment tool I recently wrote to cover the unit of competency, TAEASS502 Design and develop assessment tools.  Thanks, also, to the many others who offered to review the tool and give feedback.  I was overwhelmed and grateful for your offers of support.

As a result of such a strong validation – and for the thoughtful, informed feedback I received – I think we’ve produced a rock-solid product.  The power of collaboration certainly made its mark here!
