For vocational qualifications with remotely moderated units, once moderation is complete, the examiner-moderator will produce a centre feedback report for each batch of work submitted. This form is a multi-purpose document which is used to:
To view the report, log in to Interchange, hover over ‘Centre information’ and then click on ‘Examiner-moderator reports’.
If the examiner-moderator finds the standard of centre assessment is not consistent enough to ensure sample moderation will be successful, the claim will be withdrawn. The centre assessor will then be responsible for re-assessing the work before re-submitting the claim.
Feedback reports are not available via Interchange for claims that have been withdrawn completely. However, we will email a copy of the report to the designated contact in the centre (usually the exams officer).
For externally verified qualifications, after each visit, the external verifier will prepare a quality assurance report, which will be emailed to you as soon as it is available.
You can also access all of your reports via Interchange by hovering over ‘Centre information’ and then clicking on ‘External verifier reports’ in the left-hand menu.
This report will provide details of any actions and/or recommendations made by the external verifier at the visit. If relevant, the report will also include any recommended sanctions imposed on your centre in line with the OCR criteria for verified qualifications.
If the centre meets the appropriate criteria, the external verifier may recommend they are awarded direct claims status.
When a sanction level 2, 3 or 4 is recommended or lifted by the external verifier, the report will be reviewed by OCR and a letter confirming the imposing or lifting of the sanction sent to the head of centre. (See the appeals page for details of how to appeal a sanction.)
For all vocational qualifications, hard copy control reports are issued at the same time as certificates for all internal assessments and paper-based tests. These provide qualification-appropriate details:
The control report for remote moderation and verified qualifications lists passes (any ‘fails’ would be withdrawn).
