The four golden rules of gathering evidence for assessment.

Valid - does the evidence relate to a unit of competence? Does the evidence reflect the four dimensions of competency? Does it address the key competencies?

Sufficient - is the full range of performance identified in the standards covered? Does the evidence show competence over a period of time and in a range of contexts?

Current - does the evidence show that the candidate can perform the competence while working? Is it benchmarked against industry standards?

Authentic - is this the candidate's own work?
