QQI is inviting feedback from stakeholders on Modification to Sectoral Convention 3 on Repeating for Honours in QQI’s ‘Assessment and Standards’.
Assessment and Standards 2013 was originally developed in 2009 by HETAC, one of QQI’s antecedents:
The Sectoral Conventions for Assessment comprise a set of regulations and benchmarks which, in the interest of fairness and consistency, are agreed at the sectoral level by QQI and all associated providers.
The ‘associated providers’ referenced are providers of higher education programmes that QQI had validated and providers to whom QQI had delegated award-making authority. The classifications available for QQI awards are set down in Sectoral Convention 1 of Assessment and Standards Revised 2013). Sectoral Convention 3 sets down some constraints on how those classifications may be determined.
