In this evidence you will need to explain your understanding of the principles and requirements of your assessment practices. 1. Explain how peer and self assessment can be used to promote effective learner involvement in the assessment process, what are the benefits of learners taking ownership and responsibility for their learning journey:It is important to involve learners in the assessment process as it is theirs. They need to take responsibility for their progression and learning. This will encourage and motivate learners to think about their own performance and assess their learning and competencies. Part of the learning journey is for the learner to be competent in seeing their own skills and abilities and be able to guide themselves. They should be able to identify their progressions themselves through self-evaluation and through gaining feedback from their peers. This is a great way to encourage a positive learning journey.This evidence will be referenced to Unit 301 Assessment Criteria 4.3

Explain how you would deal with disagreements and disputes regarding your assessment process and assessment decisions, making reference to the LEAD appeals and complaints procedures.If there were to be a disagreement or dispute regarding an assessment decision I had made, I would firstly discuss this with the learner explaining the reasoning for my judgment and showing them the standards and why the criteria had not been met. If this was not satisfactory explanation for the learner I would inform my supervisor who would then look at my assessment and conclude if she is in agreement with my decision. If this is the case this would be explained to the learner. Every effort would be made to satisfy the learner and support and guidance in how to meet the criteria would be given.This evidence will be referenced to Unit 301 Assessment Criteria 6.3 3.

It is also good way to keep a clear audit trail to which strengthens your evidence within the portfolio. This evidence will be referenced to Unit 301 Assessment Criteria 7.1
