External Examining

My responses to the challenges

– drafted before today!

I’ll maybe just select a few.......

problem area 1 fheq level
Problem Area 1: FHEQ level
  • Explore four sources of data
  • The basis for assessment
  • The evidence in (hopefully varied) students’ work
  • Discussion with teacher about the rationale of the assessment
  • Discussion (anonymously) with students - after results decided
problem area 2 alignment
Problem Area 2: Alignment
  • Check learning outcomes against demand of assessments – and teaching plans; in particular.....
  • Check demand of assessment against declared learning outcomes
  • Watch out for claimed outcomes not explicitly assessed
  • Watch out for assessed outcomes not quite in accordance with specification
problem area 3 supervision
Problem Area 3: Supervision
  • Ask supervisors to append a note of the advice and assistance they have given to students during the year
  • Ask students to initial this, or comment upon it
  • Suggest that this is an essential input to judgement, internal and external, if creativity and problem-solving are to be judged
problem area 4 refereeing
Problem Area 4: Refereeing
  • Insist that your job is to advise the VC about the integrity and rigour of the process; and that you can't do that if you are a major player
  • Offer your advice on how problems of this type can be handled by the Board
  • Ask the Board to follow that advice, or decide, with reasons, not to!
problem area 5 group work
Problem Area 5: Group work
  • Acknowledge this as a sector-wide issue, to be tackled collegially
  • Suggest requirements include keeping of records which identify who did what – with qualitative self- and peer-assessment accordingly
  • Suggest rewording of module descriptor, to reflect varying areas of development and achievement
problem area 6 private public
Problem Area 6: Private/public?
  • First priority is fairness to current cohort, according to their experience
  • Next is collegial discussion of need for change and form of change
  • If this is agreed, and seems likely to be in place for next year, so report - but only in general terms
  • If a problem persists, report detail formally and illuminatively to the QA system
problem 7 incompetence
Problem 7: Incompetence
  • Present observed facts for which data is available
  • Offer no judgement
  • Ask for/expect a judgement to be made and action taken by the line manager
  • Decide if you do or do not support that decision
problem area 8 lack of action
Problem Area 8: Lack of action
  • Sleep on draft correspondence
  • Concentrate on facts, not judgements
  • State clear recommendations
  • Use recorded delivery
  • Ask for decision on recommendations
  • Move steadily up seniority levels
  • Maybe opt to resign, stating why
  • That usually leads to prompt action
