RPL, Credit for prior study, and training based assessments are modern and flexible working closely with each eligible client to achieve their desired outcomes

CLET's Assessment Processes

One of the great achievements of holding a Nationally Recognised Qualification is the confidence that your skills and knowledge have been assessed against learning standards that apply across Australia. This means, regardless of where the qualification is issued, it is recognised in all States and Territories.

All Nationally Recognised Qualifications come as Training Packages or Accredited Courses and have a set of criteria that all Registered Training Organisations (RTO's) are required to meet when assessing. Assessment for a Nationally Recognised Qualification can be done using recognition of prior learning (RPL), credit for prior study, or in training-based assessment tasks. The criteria are grouped together as:

  • Performance Criteria including foundation skills
  • Performance Evidence
  • Knowledge Evidence
  • Assessment Conditions

The criteria inside each unit assigned to a qualification are comprehensive and each RTO is required to have  trainers and assessors competent in the skills and knowledge of each unit together with industry currency and training and assessment qualifications to conduct assessments.

The Australian Core Skills Framework (ACSF) is a tool that assists the assessment process focusing on the five core skills of learning, reading, writing, oral communication, and numeracy attached to each unit inside a qualification.

Assessment Overview

CLET offers online training in selected qualifications it has on scope. These courses are available for individuals to study the full qualification and to individuals who may have some units credited through RPL or credit for prior study.

Courses are assessed using a diverse range of assessment strategies to ensure the assessment conditions for each unit of competency are well addressed and provide students with interesting and flexible assessment experiences.

Many assessments will include researching, reading and analysing information on your computer, laptop or tablet (Internet required). However, each unit of study provides assessment instructions and benchmarks you can easily follow to successfully complete each assessment task and CLET training staff are just the click of a button away if you have a question.

Assessment methods

The following assessment methods are a reflection of the tasks involved in the online study programs with CLET. Each assessment task will provide clear assessment instructions of what is required. The tasks you will most likely be asked to complete may include some or all of the following:

Knowledge questioning Timed and untimed online quizzes and online assignments (short answer questions).
Written tasks Case studies, scenarios, assignments, workbooks, forms, presentations, reports, essays, mind maps, reflections, self assessment, action plans, and research projects.
Audio recordings Audio presentations using audio software on PC, MAC, smart phone or tablet.
Video recordings Video presentations using video recording software on PC, MAC, or camera on smart phone or tablet.

Industry contact Attending an industry location to observe and/or participate.
Industry consultation Contact with industry bodies 
Creative Some tasks may require the use of creative software such as Canva, Miro, MilaNote for mindmaps, infographics, presentations, and brochures.
Industry requirements There may be times where a course criteria requests a specific industry skill or use of specialised equipment, such as driving a motor vehicle or use of a camera. To check if this is a requirement for your selected course, please refer to the Entry and Equipment and Software Requirements on that course page for details.
