How will my child’s grades be determined this year?
0 out Of 5 Stars
This year there will be no statistical standardisation using an algorithm. Instead, there will be a direct link between the grade awarded to your child and their completed work, with more weight given to the professional judgement of their teachers. However, there will also be moderation of centre assessments and grades provided by the school to ensure the decision has been arrived at fairly.
The Education Minister has stated that equity and fairness are at the core of the approach which has been developed. Throughout June 2021, CCEA will carry out an external quality assurance process looking at the grades submitted by all schools and colleges and reviewing samples of work to make sure the grades submitted accurately reflect the outcomes provided.
