What makes a trustworthy assessment?

I have just completed an 18-month project with Research in Practice for Adults (RiPfA) to produce resources to help assessors carry out good assessments.

The main issue that I found was that all assessments have to be different - because people are different, yet we need to know that any assessment is good enough against some kind of universal standard.

So how do you know when an assessment can be trusted?
