This report highlights the diversity of assessment methods used in flexible delivery modes of teaching across Australia's vocational education and training (VET)sector. While assessment practice is underpinned by training package and course curriculum requirements, other factors influence the methods teachers and assessors choose. These include the availability of qualified workplace assessors, the proximity of students to teachers or assessors, the need to ensure students' work is their own, and the involvement of learners and workplaces in the assessment process. This suggests challenges and opportunities exist for teachers in a competency-based training and assessment system.
