4.2 Assessment Assessment Tools An Assessment Tool for each of the assessable program modules has been included at Attachment J. The same assessment tool will be used for modules 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5 and 5.6 as the same competencies are involved in each of those modules. Each participant must participate in all of the modules 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5 and 5.6, but needs to be assessed in only two of them.. Flexibility. Assessors are encouraged to cater for participants in remote localities by scheduling group-centred assessments to coincide with training camps, or major national competitions in which large numbers of the orienteering community participate, or using video-conferencing facilities. Also, in such cases, some discussion-type activities will lend themselves to assessment by written report, or project report, or presentation of a diary/portfolio/video..
4.3 Coaching Practice OA sees that coaching practice is essential to achieving competency. Ideally, that coaching practice should occur after the other aspects of this Level 1 course have been completed. However, the State Coaching Director may allow some practice coaching to count towards Level1 competency in special circumstances e.g. a very experienced orienteer who has helped orienteering groups or individuals before seeking coach accreditation. The conditions of Practice Coaching are outlined in Section 6.
