tough new test standards expected to protect integrity

26 November 2012

At a time when the exam system in the UK is already under considerable scrutiny, it looks set for another bump on the road to recovery.

The exams regulator Ofqual has warned that tough new guidelines will be enforced around the use of exam seminars aimed at preparing teachers. The rules will aim to stop any abuse of the current system, with claims that teachers are being guided on the questions to expect and the wording being looked for in the answers pupils give. The outcome of these allegations is that the training sessions will be banned and that only certain exam related events will be permitted and even those will be recorded.

Integrity and transparency of the exam system is key to ensuring that the attainment of pupils is fairly reflected and that there is confidence in the results.
