So how did Vocational Training Materials Australia go when tested?
The questions and answers on each unit reflect the knowledge and foundation skills of the units. Remember, many units also have a workplace or practical component that can't be assessed through a game or group-based activity. So, each unit resource from VTMA will have varying levels of completeness towards capturing competency in a unit.
Games and gamified learning as part of formative and summative assessment is a great way to make sure students more deeply understand the unit content. Students get the opportunity to think through or demonstrate their understanding of how it applies in context. The activities are one part of a comprehensive assessment package and when videoed, provide solid evidence towards a determination of competency.
