ISSUES RAISED AS PART OF THE
REACCREDITATION
DIGITAL LITERACY

• What approach should be taken? Should it be:

•
stand alone?

optional?

necessary outcome of the CGEA and integrated as a
component of literacy and numeracy development
ISSUES RAISED AS PART OF THE

INTEGRATED DELIVERY &
ASSESSMENT
Delivery & Assessment advice
• Advice on integrated delivery and assessment provided in each unit:
Application Statement – VU21289 Create short simple texts for employment
purposes:
The link between reading and writing across the different domains also
encourages co-delivery and assessment of additional units, such as
VU21283 Engage with short simple texts for personal purposes and VU21287
Create short simple texts for personal purposes
Critical Aspects of Assessment - VU21289 Create short, simple texts for
employment purposes:
Where this unit is being co-assessed with units related to another domain,
such as personal, the same texts may be relevant to both domains.
• Advice on integration included in Section B – 6.1
ASSESSMENT STRATEGY
An integrated approach to assessment should be
used to:
• maximise opportunities for holistic skill development
and evidence gathering
• reduce likelihood of repetitious delivery and over
assessment
• reduce atomisation and duplication of evidence
collection
• make the evidence gathering more efficient for
learners and teachers / assessors.
