Open consultation

Moderation and verification of centre assessment judgements


Consultation on awarding organisation controls around centre assessment judgements.

This consultation closes at

Consultation description

Where assessment judgements are made by centres, our current rules require an awarding organisation to check results for each group of learners before they are issued. In many cases this is not being delivered, and if it were, some vocational and technical qualifications may no longer be deliverable.

We want to make sure our rules allow for qualifications to be delivered in a way that meets the needs of users, while ensuring standards are appropriate whenever and wherever a qualification is taken. We are proposing to change some of our rules relating to the controls awarding organisations have in place with centres, to strike an appropriate balance between ensuring an appropriate level of awarding organisation control over centre-assessment judgements, and ensuring qualifications can be delivered to meet the needs of users.

Consultation events

We are holding events in Manchester and London where you can find out more about our proposals and have the opportunity to ask questions.
