Q. How does RPL Assess work?

A. RPL Assess is designed to provide a consistent, valid and transparent RPL approach. All too often assessors' judgments on RPL evidence vary.

RPL Assess includes examples of typical RPL evidence and a recommended numerical value for the piece of evidence.

Q. Do I get instructions on how to ‘make it work’?

A. Yes, please refer to our User’s Guide

Q. Can the RTO assessor decide on the value of evidence?

A. Yes, You're in control. An essential step in the RPL process asks the assessor to assign a numeric value to each item of evidence. The assessor may accept or reject the RPL Assess recommendations.

Q. How does the 100 points idea work?

A. The RPL Assess system allows you to easily and quickly assign your numerically valued evidence against each Performance Criteria, Performance Evidence and Knowledge Evidence.

The RPL Assess system tracks this process with a live barometer/sliding scale. When the barometer reaches 100 points, a satisfactory result is achieved - move to the next criteria.

Q. I don't usually assess a RPL application in such detail. Isn't 100 points for every criterion 'over the top'?

A. The Rules of Evidence and the Principles of Assessment require RTOs to confirm a satisfactory performance standard against each aspect of the unit of competency - just like any other form of assessment.

RPL Assess captures and manages this process online. It creates a tangible and measurable record of how the assessor arrived at their assessment judgment.

Q. Can I show the assigned evidence to an auditor?

A. Yes. Once the RPL assessment is completed, the evidence is locked. The evidence assigned to each Performance Criteria, Performance Evidence and Knowledge Evidence can be viewed via a drop down menu at any time.

Q. Will this RPL approach pass audit?

A. There can never be a guarantee. In fact, you should be wary of developers offering an audit guarantee. We have an exceptional track record, passing multiple ASQA audits without alteration or comment.

Q. Does the RPL approach cover each aspect of the unit of competency?

A. Yes. The Performance Criteria, Performance Evidence, Knowledge Evidence and Assessment Conditions are assessed. The evidence assigned to each criterion must reach 100 points.

Q. How do I receive the unit once the purchase is made?

A. Once you register you will have your own sub-domain - for example: https://yourname.oamsapp.com.au - with your login and password. You access your unit(s) via your sub-domain - no need to return to our main website.
