Unit standard interpretation
Industry standards, industry best practice, legislation and codes change quite frequently. Unit Standard interpretations allow for continued use and application of current Assessors should always assess according to what is current industry practice.
If certain aspects of the Unit Standard Range Statements or Performance Criteria are out of date and don’t align with current industry practice, then it may be appropriate to ignore these aspects when conducting an assessment.
Unit Standard interpretations are designed to give additional guidance to Assessors for specific unit standards only. They are an interim measure to be applied until such time as the unit standard in question is reviewed in full.
If you are aware of any issues with Primary ITO unit standards or assessments, please email your feedback to Product@primaryito.ac.nz
