Slide1

Entry Pathways General Administration

April 2012

Slide2

Entries

Entries for unit codes

and

cash in codes (if applicable) should be made by:

21st October

for January Series

21st March

for June Series

A cash-in code should only be submitted when the candidate has completed enough credits for the qualification to be awarded.

Candidates should

only

be

entered

once a unit is completed and passed by centre assessors.

Slide3

Internal

Standardisation

A

ll candidates must

be

judged to the same standard across different assessors

and

teaching groups

from year to year.

Where more than one Assessor is involved, the centre must appoint an Internal Verifier. The role of the Internal Verifier is to:

check that all assessment criteria and learning outcomes are achieved;

ensure all Assessors have copies of the assessment records;

sample Assessor judgements at appropriate times to ensure that assessment criteria are correctly and

consistently applied;

co-ordinate meetings of Assessors, including arrangements to

standardise

their judgements;

give and record feedback to Assessors;

maintain records of the work/evidence sampled, and of the outcomes.

Slide4

Online System

An online sampling system will operate from June 2012 series for centre achievement for units.

The

system will automatically identify the

sample

candidates

whose work is to be

despatched to

the

moderator

.

The

screens will be available to designated

account

holders

from

6th April

once the

entries have been

received

and processed by

WJEC. The

name and

address

of

the moderator will

be shown on screen and can be

printed

onto blank

labels.

The

internally assessed

work, cover sheets and assessment records

for

the sample

candidates should then

be despatched

to

the moderator

.

Slide5

Presentation of Folders

• Each candidate’s work should be clearly marked with the

centre name and number, candidate name and

number, unit title(s)

• Ring binders (bulky to post) and plastic wallets (difficult to gain access to work)

should

not

be used.

• Where work consists of a number of assignments these should be referenced to

match learning

outcomes/ assessment criteria.

• Where evidence is presented to cover the assessment criteria for more than one

unit it should be referenced on the cover sheets.

Candidates’ evidence for each unit should be put together with the appropriate assessment record and candidate authentication sheet attached.

Where candidates have completed more than one unit within a qualification area just one authentication may be filled in for that qualification.

Slide6

Moderation and Feedback

The moderator will

verify

the sample work using the published

assessment

criteria in the unit specification.

Samples will be moderated by unit.

If there are any issues at the moderation

stage, WJEC will contact the centre to inform them that

a second sample needs to be sent.

Results will be available via the secure website on:

8th March

for January series

7th July

for June series

Feedback will be given to centres in the form of a moderator report on the day of results. Moderator

reports will provide feedback on:

t

he efficiency of the centre’s administration;

t

he appropriateness of the tasks and the coverage of assessment objectives;

t

he accuracy of the centre’s assessments against the criteria and in relation to the agreed standard

.

Slide7

Return of Work

Moderators will return work direct to centres as soon as possible after moderation.

WJEC will handle with care material submitted for moderation, but cannot accept

responsibility for loss or damage. Samples may be retained by WJEC for use as exemplar or archive material.

Centres are required to retain candidates’ assessed work under secure conditions, so far as practicable, until all possibility of queries on results has been exhausted

, and to maintain their own archive for future internal verification.

Centres are requested to keep a record of candidate numbers and names of those candidates whose work is included in the sample sent or seen by moderators. This information may be required if there are any enquiries upon results at a later date.

N.B

. Candidates should be advised not to include any items of real or sentimental

value,

e.g. photographs,

certificates,

etc.

Slide8

Certificates

Candidates will receive:

C

redit Certificates (listing every unit they have

achieved

and been entered for);

and

Qualification Certificates (providing the qualification cash-in code has been entered).

Certificates will be sent in

May

for January series and

October

for June series each year.
