    UNIT STANDARD ACCREDITATION AND MODERATION OPTIONS 
    The standard describes competent performance in checking, demounting and mounting heavy of the road equipment tyre, and lay down the criteria by which competence should be judged, as well as the range of circumstances in which competence should be demonstrated.

    Integrated assessment methods and tools will allow the candidate to demonstrate that she/he has acquired knowledge of and can safely and effectively apply competence identified in this unit standard.

    These tools include the following:
  • In-situ (on-the-job) observations
  • Role-play simulations
  • Structured group discussions
  • Written reports (e.g. tests, exams, case studies, projects, registers, logbooks, workbooks)
  • Verbal report backs (presentations)
  • Portfolios of evidence
  • Projects (physical visits to Government Departments)
  • Experiential learning
  • Working in teams
  • Scenario sketching

    These methods must be carefully selected based on the purpose of the assessment (for example, the written method of assessing knowledge or on-job demonstration of practical competence). The assessment must integrate a number of different methods in order to give the assessor reliable and valid proof of competence and evidence of required attitudes.

    Candidates are assessed against these assessment criteria. Currently employed candidates are observed carrying out their normal work duties by an assessor. They may also be asked to carry out simulated tasks and to answer written and/or oral questions. Candidates studying towards a Unit Standard, and who are not currently employed, will also be assessed using variety of assessment tools.

    Training providers offering the qualifications, or part thereof, shall be accredited in terms of the criteria laid down by the relevant SETA/ETQA.

    Qualified Assessors will be appointed by the training institutions offering the qualifications and must be registered and accredited with the relevant SETA/ETQA.
