This bulletin deals with current assessment procedures for the Certificate of Pre-Vocational Education (CPVE) and discusses changes in CPVE assessment that are currently being considered by Great Britain's Further Education Unit. The first section discusses the reassessments of the CPVE profile's core competence statements and the CPVE preparatory modules that are currently underway. The pilot testing of CPVE optional assessments is also mentioned. The remainder of the bulletin is devoted to assessment in CPVE. The following topics are covered: the purposes of assessment; assessment principles; steps in effective assessment (extending the profile statements, specifying particular attainments or tasks, offering appropriate comments, and describing what a good piece of work would be like); assessment of vocational studies; assessment for progression (making portfolios more revealing and making local progression arrangements); and other Further Education Unit publications on assessments.
