‘How to design competency-based assessment’ webinar

Most TAFE teachers, trainers and assessors working for an RTO learnt about designing competency-based assessment when they studied for their TAE40116 Certificate IV in Training and Assessment qualification . But designing a competency-based assessment for real is often very different to learning about it at a TAE training course.
