Guidance for assessment approaches - in relation to Covid-19 for Summer 2020

1. Introduction

This guidance applies to OFQUAL regulated qualifications delivered in England, Northern Ireland,
Wales and Scotland.
Our overarching aim is to allow as many learners as possible that were due to complete/achieve their
assessment/qualifications in summer 2020 to receive results, so they can progress onto further
education and employment without delay.
The qualifications in this sector serve a number of purposes, such as progression to further study,
signalling occupational competence, or are linked to occupational regulation, such as licence to
practice and as such they vary in their assessment approaches and therefore their assessment and
mitigation approaches.
This guidance covers the assessment and mitigation processes that will be applied to the
qualifications in this sector. These include:
   •   Calculated results
   •   Adaptation
   •   Delay
   •   No mitigation required

We are committed to developing a process that, as far as possible, will:
   1. be practical and manageable for centres
   2. support the validity and reliability of learner results
   3. maintain standards.

                                                         4

2. Scope of qualifications

For information on Exceptional Arrangements for Vocational and Technical qualifications see here.
In line with the government’s stated aim of ensuring parity between GQ and VTQ learners and to
ensure VTQ learners can progress to HE/FE/employment, the following mitigation and assessment
approaches apply, arrangements for all qualifications in this sector are detailed in this document.
Calculated results/centre-assessment grades
We have proposed calculated results/centre-assessment grades for qualifications where:
   •    their primary purpose is either progression to either further or higher education. Learners will
        receive a calculated result for assessments they were due to complete this academic year
   •    there is sufficient evidence available to form a valid judgement and where there are no health
        & safety or safeguarding issues.

Calculated results will draw appropriately on a range of trusted evidence and will be based primarily
on tutor judgements of what result each learner would most likely have achieved had they had sat
their assessments this summer.
These will then be subject to quality assurance by City & Guilds. City & Guilds will also quality assure
the judgements across different centres once they have been submitted. Where there are banked
assessment results already achieved for learners, these will be used.

Adaptation
We have proposed Adaptation for qualifications where:
   •    their primary purpose is a mix of either progression to further or higher education or signifying
        competence, or where the primary purpose is to signify competence.
   •    a calculated result/centre-assessment grade is not possible
   •    learners are completing programmes of study where the primary aim is linked directly to
        occupational or professional competence
   •    the validity of the assessment will remain protected
   •    it does not conflict with identified health and safety or safeguarding issues

Delay
For some qualifications, assessments will need to be delayed where neither estimation nor adaptation
is possible.
This is very much based on the purpose and nature of the qualification.
Qualifications such as licence to practice qualifications or those qualifications considered ‘high risk’
will fall under this approach.
Please refer to Appendix D : List of qualifications where delay is the approach.

                                                         5
Guidance for assessment approaches - in relation to Covid-19 for Summer 2020

No mitigation required
For some qualifications it will be the case that no mitigation is required as assessments can continue
to be delivered and assessed in the usual way according to the acceptable approaches within the
assessment strategy/plan.
Please refer to Appendix C : List of qualifications where no mitigation is required.

For a small number of qualifications, a ‘hybrid’ approach may be proposed with a primary mitigation
approach for most outstanding assessments and a secondary mitigation for others. Full details for
where this approach exists within the specific qualifications is provided in this guidance document.

Where the primary mitigation approach for a qualification is adaptation, but calculated results/centre
assessment grades are permitted for some of the assessments, this is indicated in the adaptation list
with an *. Please note the different submission timescales for adaptation results and centre calculated
grades.

3. Scope of Learners

These mitigation approaches are ONLY available to learners who meet the following criteria:
   •   Were incomplete/still registered as of 20th March 2020
   •   Were scheduled to complete their qualification/assessments by 31st July 2020
   •   Have completed a learning programme that addresses a significant proportion of the content of
       the qualification
   •   Have met any specific requirements at qualification level as set out later in this document if
       applicable.
For any learners where access arrangements have been agreed (for example a reader or extra time),
this should be taken into consideration in the mitigation approach.
Centres should give consideration of where illness or other personal circumstances might have
affected learner performance in assessments or assessment components that have already been
undertaken.

Arrangements for learners out of scope
For learners out of scope please continue to offer remote and blended learning where feasible,
supporting learners to prepare for their assessments once the government guidance allows them to
return to their centres. The following actions should be taken by centres:
   •   Continue to support learners with their learning remotely in line with current and evolving social
       distancing requirements
   •   Tutors/assessors should continue to undertake formative assessment and to support remote
       learning
Formal summative assessment can be resumed when the centre re-opens.
International learners are not in scope for these mitigations.

4. Qualifications where calculated results are permitted

At City & Guilds we want to ensure that wherever possible learners who planned to take assessments
this summer for progression to either further or higher education or into employment will be able to
receive results.
In many circumstances where progression to either further or higher education is the primary purpose
of the qualification, learners will receive a calculated result for assessments they were due to
complete this academic year. Calculated results will draw appropriately on a range of trusted
evidence and will be based primarily on tutor judgements of what result each learner would most
likely have achieved had they had sat their assessments this summer.
These will then be subject to quality assurance by City & Guilds. City & Guilds will also quality assure
the judgements across different centres once they have been submitted. Where there are banked
assessment results already achieved for learners, these will used.
The individual qualification pages that follow provide detail of the specific assessments and conditions
where calculated results are permitted.
Please refer to Appendix A: List of qualifications where calculated results are permitted.

City & Guilds website:

5. Qualifications where adaptation of assessments is permitted

Please refer to Appendix B: List of qualifications where adaptation of assessments is permitted.

Types of adaptation that may be used
The individual qualification pages that follow provide detail of the specific adaptations that are
permitted for individual assessments. The main types of adaptation that have been used across
qualifications include:
Observation
In some instances where direct observation is not possible, the number of required observations for
assessment have been reduced. In other instances, alternative methods of assessment may be
accepted (e.g. Expert Witness Testimony).
Simulation
The use of simulation to assess activities that would typically have occurred in a certain (e.g. real
work) environment.
Knowledge-based written assessments
The use of a range of adaptations have been suggested, depending on the qualification, but typically
include:
   a) A relaxation of conditions, e.g. tasks that may have typically been done in supervised
      conditions in a centre that now may be taken in the learner’s home.
   b) An adaptation to the mode of assessment e.g. use of oral questioning.
Professional Discussion
The use of a professional discussion element to provide evidence of coverage that may not be
possible for learners to produce through typical assessment processes at this time (e.g. instead of a
practical task).

For more information on the adaptation process, please refer to the Quality Process Arrangements
and Guidance for assessments that have been adapted document on the City & Guilds website.

What adaptations to assessments are permitted?

Centre marked assignment and tasks assessing knowledge and understanding
Knowledge assignments/knowledge tasks can still be completed by learners provided the centre has
software or processes in place that maintains the security of the assessment materials, generates
evidence that can be retained by the centre and authenticates that the responses are the candidates
own.
Where assessments have been completed after centres were closed, centres must exercise caution
where that evidence suggests a change in performance. In many cases this is likely to reflect the
circumstances and context in which the work was completed.

Where it is not possible to complete the knowledge assignment, the following adaptions are also
permitted.
Wherever possible, knowledge and understanding criteria usually assessed by the evolve tests or
knowledge assignments or tasks, can be inferred from practical observations that have already been
achieved and there is trusted evidence of that observation.
Where knowledge and understanding cannot be inferred from the observation, other assessment
methods such as oral Q&A or professional discussion should be used to generate evidence against
the remaining criteria.
Oral questioning/professional discussion must be carried out by an assessor who is occupationally
competent and in a way that authenticates the responses are the candidates own.
These will need to be recorded in written or verbal format and linked to the assessment criteria.
Standard IQA processes should remain in place but can be carried out remotely

On-demand evolve tests
Remote invigilation is not available, however, where learners are able to continue to take the evolve
test safely in their normal assessment environment, the tests are still available to sit.

Centre marked assignment assessing practical skills
A minimum of one observation must have been achieved to a minimum of a pass standard for each
practical unit claimed. For the following units the additional requirements must also be met to claim
the unit

   •   206 Cut women’s hair – Have been observed carrying out a one length, uniform layer and
       graduated look. One of these observations may have been carried out on a block.

                                                        14
Guidance for assessment approaches - in relation to Covid-19 for Summer 2020

     •   207 Colour & lighten hair – Have been observed carrying out woven highlight/ lowlights
     •   201 Cut men’s hair – Have been observed carrying out a uniform layer and graduated look
     •   304 Cut women’s hair to create a variety of looks – Have been observed carrying out short and
         a long-graduated look
     •   306 Colour hair to create a variety of looks – Have been observed carrying out a full head
         colour using weaving or a slicing technique
     •   309 Provide hair extension services – Have been observed carrying out a full head service
     •   312 Cut men’s hair to create a variety of looks – Have been observed carrying out a graduated
         look.
     •   318 Provide shaving and face massage services – Have been observed carrying out full
         shaving service
     •   410 Hair colour correction service – Have been observed restoring depth and tone.

Evidence for the observation can be come from either formative or summative assessments,
including any formative assessments that were carried out on peers, provided there is trusted
documented evidence of the observation and there is confidence that the learners would not pose
any risk to the health and safety of either themselves or a client.

Observation evidence should reflect the grade submitted, any variation in the grade submitted and
the grade from the observation must be supported by additional trusted evidence that justifies the
variation in grade, along with a summary justifying the grade submitted.

For example:
Where a learner’s only evidence for a unit, is from formative evidence, but there is summative
evidence from another unit with comparable skills, this could act as justification for submission of a
higher grade.
Or
Where a learner’s only evidence for a unit is from formative evidence, but there is additional
documented evidence from practical classroom sessions carried out after the observation, that
evidences improved skills, this could act as justification for submission of a higher grade.

Evidence that has been utilised to make the judgement and a final summary of the justification for the
grade submitted must be recorded and kept at the centre.

Where centres do not have trusted evidence of face to face observation, remote observation via video
conferencing software and the use of head blocks is also permitted for the following units, provided
there is evidence of client consultation and interaction, in other units being claimed for the learner

     •   208 Perm and neutralise hair
     •   212 Create an image based on a theme within the hair and beauty sector
     •   308 Perm hair to create a variety of looks
     •   310 Make and style a hair addition

                                                        15
Guidance for assessment approaches - in relation to Covid-19 for Summer 2020

   •    311 Bridal Hairstyling
   •    316 Creative hairdressing design skills

For each of the perming units, a case study or oral questions can be used to cover the application of
perm lotion, how a development test curl would be conducted and neutralising process.

For make and style a hair addition this can only be observed remotely where learners have access to
the relevant materials, tools and equipment

Where assessment have not be completed for unit 216 salon reception duties, but the learner has
worked on reception within a Realistic Learning Environment or Realistic working environment. An
expert witness statement that describes an observation which is retrospective, can be accepted as
evidence towards achievement of this unit, provided they
    o    the observation took place during the learner’s registration period, and there is document
         evidence of the observation
    o    the expert witness can apply the grading criteria for the task to the observation.

Professional discussion should be used to discuss any aspects of criteria not covered by the expert
witness statement

a) Knowledge and understanding criteria

   For units where evolve or paper-based tests have not already been achieved, the following
   options for adaptions are available for all tests

   Centre marked paper tests assessing knowledge and understanding
   •   Oral Q&A and professional discussion can be used to generate evidence against the criteria
       covered in the test. The paper version of the test, that are available to download from the
       website, can be used as a basis of this provided the security of the assessment materials is
       maintained.
          o Where tests are multiple choice questions the multiple-choice questions can be
             rephrased in the open questions
          o Where questions have images or tables, these can either be shared discretely from the
             test, alternative equivalent image sourced, or question can be rephrased around the
             image
   •   Oral questioning/Q&A session must be carried out by an assessor who is occupationally
       competent and in a way that authenticates the responses are the candidates own. Standard
       documentation linking evidence to the assessment criteria, must be completed.
