When assessing individuals, assessors must allow suitable arrangements with the learners to give them the best possibility of achieving their work for example adapting the learning process to meet all learning styles. Please see below examples of arrangements than can be made:
• Extended time – As some individual’s may take longer to understand a question or take longer to answer both verbally/written it is the duty of the assessor to take into consideration of this and allow a suitable but overall achievable time to the learner to give them the best chance of achieving their work.
• Learners with learning difficulty (LLDD) must be considered when assessing a learner such as Dyslexia or Dyspraxia resources and assessment methods must be adapted to meet the individuals understanding of task.
• Learners with learning disability (LLDD) must have appropriate support for example a scribe may be needed to help write down the learner’s verbal answers needed for assessment.
• Written/Verbal – The awarding body that the Foundation of Light uses gives the learners opportunity to not only give written answers as evidence but verbal questioning/answer’s will also strengthen work evidence and minimise the need to explain through written coursework which overall saves time in the assessment process.
