Each time a learner completes an assessment a range of report options are available for download. These reports can then be accessed by administrators via the CSPA Online Assessment and Reporting (OARS) platform.
In conjunction with the CSPA Group Report these reports can be used by training providers to develop individual learning plans. An individual learning plan can identify if targeted LLN support is required and provide a framework for selecting suitable pathways and potential VET training options for candidates.
CSPA Individual Candidate Report for Professionals
This is a PDF report that shows which questions the candidate responded to correctly and those that were incorrect. The report also includes the scale score achieved by the candidate, which correlates with the ACSF Working At/Exit Level they have obtained. In conjunction with the enhanced CSPA Group Report, these reports can be used by training providers to develop individual learning plans.
Individual - Candidate Certificate
The Learner Certificates have been created with specific, contextualised feedback on performance against each skill area. These are suitable to provide Learners post assessment and may provide currency value for the candidate’s development portfolio. Each Certificate will feature the ACSF Level estimate: Working At and Exit levels. These will also contain the completion date and Unique ID if data is required to be de-identified and therefore candidate name is visible.
CSPA Group Reports
The CSPA Group Report shows one row in the spreadsheet for each individual candidate that has sat at least one assessment component. From left to right the columns begin with details of the candidate’s demographic field responses, followed by a section for each assessment undertaken. Within each section there will be details on the number of questions attempted, scale score, ACSF Working At and ACSF Exit Level. Details of exact start and completed times for each assessment component of the CSPA for candidates is also logged as is the date of when the Candidate Certificates were released.
Skill Area Specific Group Reports
The new Skill Area Specific Group Reports show one row in the spreadsheet for each individual candidate who has sat one assessment component. From left to right the columns begin with details of the candidate’s demographic field responses, followed by a section for each assessment undertaken. Within each section there will be details on the number of questions attempted, scale score achieved, ACSF Working At and ACSF Exit Level. This also reports which adaptive (Part Two) form the learner was directed into after the 10 screener questions.
CSPA Group Question Performance Reports
ACER has developed diagnostic reporting to allow test administrators to analyse results across a large number of candidate sittings based on ACSF Level or scale score band achieved and then drill down as far as individual candidates to view their results. There are also live Question Performance Reports available to identify common areas of difficulty for a group of candidates.
