It helps to improve learning, inform teaching, help students achieve the highest standards they can and provide meaningful reports on students’ achievement. A portfolio is a collection of different types of evidence relating to the work being assessed. It can include a variety of work samples. Portfolios are suitable for long-term activities. The learner is then responsible for the collection of evidence and the compilation of the portfolio. d) Criterion-referenced assessment : compares a candidate’s level of knowledge, skills and values in relation to a well-defined domain of content or pre-determined standard or criterion. Often one or more performance standards are set on the assessment score scale to aid in assessment score interpretation. If the learner’s performance reflects/matches the standards in the criteria that are being used for assessment he/she will be deemed competent; if not, he/she will have to be re-assessed, at the later date.

The National Curriculum Statements (NCS) for each learning area and grade in the General Education and Training Band (GET) and for each subject and grade/NQF level in the FET contain assessment standards for each grade. These assessment standards are criteria for judging the achievement of the learning outcomes for that grade. 1 Question 2
