What does an assessor do?

  In the context of education, an assessor determines whether a learner is competent in relation to the criteria or outcomes for a particular unit standard or qualification on the National Qualifications Framework (NQF). An assessor is responsible for:

  • Explaining the assessment process, as well as the required outcomes, to the learner.
  • Assessing the learner’s competence.
  • Giving constructive feedback on the assessment to the learner.
  • Recording the outcomes of the assessment.

An assessor needs to be a subject matter expert in relation to the contents of the unit standards and qualifications being assessed.

 

What does a moderator do?

  A moderator is responsible for quality assurance in relation to the assessment process. This means that a moderator will:

  • Make sure that learners are assessed in a consistent and well-designed manner.
  • Make sure that assessments are carried out fairly.
  • Handle appeals by dissatisfied learners.
  • Evaluate the performance of assessors.

A moderator will also provide assistance to assessors.

Assessors and moderators can either work as employees of skills development providers, or they can work as independent contractors.
