Abstract

The IED’s development of the Chartered Technical Product Design has prompted an investigation into
methods and processes of assessment of professional competence. This is intended to assess
competence in normal work and not using an invented assignment. The paper suggests the meanings
for professional competence and assesses different assessment methods, comparing them with those
currently used for engineers, designers and educators. It concludes that the current processes are
generally effective, but includes suggestions to modify current processes rather than suggest a
complete replacement.

Keywords: Professional competence, assessment methods.
