Quick Reference

A term applied in the assessment of students' work or performance when the question arises of whether there is enough evidence of successful achievement to allow the assessor to make an informed assessment decision. It is commonly used in assessment for vocational qualifications, where the question might be one of how many successful performances of a specific task constitute a sufficiency of evidence for the candidate to be judged competent to a national standard. Similar questions of sufficiency of evidence can arise over the assessment of written work, where it may be important to ascertain whether the learner can perform consistently at the required standard.
