Trust: Can the public have confidence in national assessments?

Each year examination boards and awarding bodies have to cope with negative perceptions of the working of the examinations process in the press and among their stakeholders. Is this a situation which people can accept?


Each year examination boards and awarding bodies have to cope with negative perceptions of the working of the examinations process in the press and among their stakeholders. Is this a situation which people can accept? Or is a general questioning of the professionalism of the boards undermining the national exam system? Have the awarding bodies made any impact on public perceptions by their greater transparency and by aligning their practices and procedures to public regulation? Perhaps this agenda should include more discussion of the meaning of the term ‘measurement error’, but will that term be unhelpfully misunderstood? Could there be more ways in which awarding bodies could work with their stakeholders to increase public trust in the judgements made by examiners and assessors?
