This unit standard is for people who moderate or intend to moderate assessments against unit standards and/or qualifications.
This workshop is based on the SAQA-registered unit standard 115759 - Moderate Assessment on NQF Level 6 with 10 credits.
WORKSHOP LEARNING OBJECTIVES
In preparing for assessment against Unit Standard 115759 participants will learn how to formulate quality management policies and procedures for assessment, assessment appeal, internal moderation, and RPL for implementation in their organizations, or audit existing quality management policies and procedures for assessment, assessment appeal, internal moderation, and RPL.
The moderator will also learn to:
• Design and develop moderation techniques and systems
• Plan and prepare for moderation
• Conduct moderation
• Advise and support assessors and assessment agencies.

• Assessment relationships
• The internal moderator
• The external moderator
• Feed-back on unit standards

Learners are required to participate fully in group and individual learning activities during the workshop. Furthermore, learners are encouraged at all times to identify and express their specific learning needs and contribute to the knowledge base of the group from their unique experience.
RECOGNITION OF PRIOR LEARNING
BBT INSTITUTE Training can assist learners who need recognition of prior learning as moderators, to hand in evidence of this prior learning for assessment and certification.
During the workshop participants will be briefed on how to prepare and submit a moderation evidence portfolio for assessment against unit standard Moderate Assessment. This entails doing at least moderation of one assessment.
As soon as a candidate moderator is found to be competent, and once endorsement has been received from ETDP SETA, we will issue the necessary certificate. This certificate will be accepted by the relevant ETQA should you need to register as a moderator. BBT INSTITUTE Training is available to assess moderators within the workplace in recognition of prior learning processes.
ROLE OF THE MODERATOR
Moderation maintains the quality and credibility of assessment of all unit standards and qualifications within the NQF system.
The moderator's role is to ensure that the assessment process is fair, valid, reliable and practicable. A moderator is therefore responsible for moderating and supporting assessors, as well as setting up and managing an assessment and moderation system (through policies and procedures).
BBT INSTITUTE Training assists organizations in drawing up their policies and procedures for assessment, assessment appeals, moderation and recognition of prior learning (RPL).
WHO IS A REGISTERED MODERATOR?
A registered moderator is someone who is competent against the unit standard ASSMT02 Moderate Assessments, and meets the relevant ETQA moderator registration requirements with regard to their qualification and/or experience within a specific field of learning and/or work.
