The RARPA process was devised as a framework for ensuring that progress and achievement could be evidenced for learners and teachers in learning where there is no formal accreditation.
NIACE’s work in this field identified that there are many paper free methods of conducting initial, formative and summative assessment. We want to ensure that learners have access to a wide range of methods of tracking their progress. Methods which are flexible fit for purpose and inspirational rather than bureaucratic.
- Video and audio recordings of learners’ self assessment
- Video and audio recordings of learners performing a skill
- Digital photographs illustrating products of learning linked to reflective writing or speaking about the process
- Use of blogs
- E portfolios
