Opportunities For Improvement to WSQA Process
  • Examiner training
  • Completing the stage 1 grid
  • Using the gaps and notes tab
  • Comment writing
  • Consensus Meetings
  • Scoring consistency
    • Integration
    • Learning
    • Comparative Data
  • Considerations for small organizations
question 1
Question 1
  • Further clarification of “performance projections” vs “goals”
  • Inclusion of goals in results category – why are they not included in the evaluation?
  • Why are projections expected for all measures in all scoring ranges?
  • Why are projections not in the Results Criteria?
question 2
Question 2
  • Why don’t we align results items with process items? Currently 1.1 is aligned with 7.6 instead of being aligned with 7.1.

Question 3

  • Without comparisons, how do you interpret levels? Without a point of reference, how can an Examiner understand a “level”?
Question 4
  • How are key themes assessed (from applicant’s perspective)?

Question 5

  • How do we evaluate applicants that are part of a larger system? For example an applicant might say that they use a process established by the system for which they are a part.
Question 6
  • Why don’t we ask applicants to define/describe their work system(s), e.g., in 6.1.a.1, “What is/are your work system(s)?”


  • Clarify the difference between work systems and work processes. There appears to be overlap and the category is labeled process management.
