The effectiveness of a training imparted is reflected in Assessment of the trained candidate (hereafter referred as Trainee). The term assessment refers to the wide variety of methods that trainers use to evaluate, measure, and document the readiness, learning progress, and skill acquisition of trainee. While assessments are often equated with traditional tests, there are diverse array of assessment tools and methods to measure effectiveness of training imparted. Assessments are also used to identify gaps in training and strengths so that trainers can provide specialized support, if required. While assessments come in many complex forms, and they are used for a wide variety of purposes, Assessment Protocol is used in evaluating a person to assess followed properly according to set standards.
Once an Implementing Agencies (IAs) completed the training the effectiveness of the training imparted and skill acquired by the trainees is assessed by a third person called 'Assessor'. As envisaged above the main objective of the training program under ISDS is to make a NON-WORKING person to a WORKING person. Therefore, it is anticipated that a person after the training is ready to take up the regular work at shop floor level as a skill worker. Keeping this in mind following objectives for assessment is developed.
