What is Assessment?

Assessment is the means by which a learner’s skills and knowledge are reviewed in order to evaluate what they have learned.

In the case of OCN accreditation and qualifications, assessment is the process by which judgements are made about whether a learner has achieved the learning outcomes in a unit.

Assessment Guidance

The OCN London Assessment Guidance document provides further information on the minimum requirements for assessment including the nature of tasks that could be set at different levels and the type of evidence to collect.

Assessment Templates

OCN London has developed a set of assessment forms which are available for centres to use. These are based on good practice in centres as identified by Centre Moderators. They are not mandatory but recommended to new centres and to existing centres reviewing their Assessment practice.
