A major component of this assessment is a learning exercise. The exercise is structured as follows: after initial instruction on how to do the task, the respondent does a translation exercise using a “Dictionary”, which provides him or her with symbol-to-symbol and symbol-to-word equivalences. The candidate or employee is then given a comprehensive lesson on the content, structure and logic of the Dictionary. This lesson is intended to help liberate the respondent from the Dictionary as much as possible. The more the candidate or employee knows of the Dictionary, the faster he or she will do the translations, as looking up the answers in the Dictionary takes time. After the lesson, the translation exercise is presented a second time, and the respondent has the opportunity to show how much he or she has improved – thus indicating learning potential, accuracy and detail consciousness. The candidate is also placed on a NQF-Level based on performance on this assessment.
