Teacher Assessed Grades
As you will be aware, as a result of Covid 19 the process for completion of academic and technical qualifications has again this year changed and TAG (Teacher Assessed Grades) will be used to finalise qualification outcomes.
That said, there are various degrees as to which this process will work, dependent upon the qualification being taken. The big difference this year, compared with last year’s process, is that there is much more emphasis on the grade being determined by an evidence-based approach and that work completed, whether that be in-class assessments, completions of modules, mock or full exams sat, or coursework completed will be used to support the TAG outcomes.
All learners will have had this explained to them, and have been working towards completing as much work as possible to ensure they are awarded the grade they deserve. In some qualifications (e.g. Functional Skills) there are no modifications to assessment and exams need to still be sat and achieved to gain the qualification.
The College is working closely with awarding bodies to ensure that the evidence required is in place to support the TAG grades awarded.
Learners must communicate with their tutors and ensure that they have completed all necessary elements their programme, to the standard required to ensure that they leave with the qualification they deserve.
