New structure for APC report reviews introduced
SASC introduces simplified structure for review of APC reports. From January 2020 this new structure with its accompanying marking guide will be used for the review of reports submitted for review.

A Guide for consistency across issuing bodies for evaluation of reports for Assessment Practising Certificate renewal applications

From January 2020 this new structure with its accompanying marking guide will be used for the review of submitted reports.

The APC renewal process offers an opportunity both for individual professional development through feedback on assessment reports and for issuing bodies to support the overall aim of the review to underpin and improve assessment practice standards. These criteria should be used by assessors, by training providers and also apply where a report may be required in the initial application for an Assessment Practising Certificate.

SASC has looked at simplifying the approach to review of assessment practice and feel that a move to a proforma used by all APC issuing bodies, while supporting one set of core criteria, will add clarity to the feedback assessors receive. It is felt that a move away from the current ‘3 levels' to one set of core criteria will be clearer and promote greater consistency.

These criteria with their accompanying feedback pro forma will be used by all APC issuing bodies for all reports received from 1 January 2020.

The full criteria and marking scheme can be found in the downloads section of this website or using the links below.
