Scoring analysis

This document presents the latest data on scores from Part A and Part B assessments, and offers some analysis about what they mean about current achievement, and about the differences between those passing and those failing.

The analysis is offered to help those at many levels – government, training provider, employer, improvement adviser – better understand what the Training Quality Standard is telling us about training capability and performance, and to understand how well an organisation has fared in assessment by comparing its scores with the wider group.

All of the data relates to organisations in England, with scores resulting from assessments between the autumn of 2007 and February 2008, from assessments validated as complete by the Certification Panel.

Part A first sets out data on the outcomes for Part A assessments; Part B then does the same for Part B assessments; Further analysis then adds to this the key data on pass rates and key score points for comparison.

Evaluation summary

This summary draws from a wider evaluation of available data on assessment satisfaction, impact, score outcomes, and certificated providers’ performance, used to assess progress to date and identify lessons learned.  The summary looks at the deployment and take-up of TQS assessment, the impact assessment and certification have had, and the rigour of the Standard as an assessment framework and process.
