Learners must complete a portfolio of evidence to show how they have met the assessment criteria for each unit.

Teachers can choose any assessment method or combination of methods that clearly demonstrates the learner has met the assessment criteria and achieved the learning outcomes. These methods may include:

• sketch books;
• a range of practical outcomes;
• photographs;
• written evidence;
• tracking document;
• screenshots;
• audiovisual recordings;
• samples; or
• maquettes.

There may be pieces of assessment evidence in a learner's portfolio that cover criteria for more than one unit, but teachers must assess each unit independently.

Teachers assess the outcomes for each unit and CCEA will moderate a sample of the centre's marking.

Achievement at unit level is pass or not passed.

Assessment can take place as and when the learner is ready.

Centres may submit assessment outcomes to us for external moderation in Summer each year, beginning in Summer 2016.

We will make the first unit award and first full qualification award based on this specification in Summer 2016.

The specification contains more detailed information on the assessment and moderation requirements.
