CCEA Accreditation as the regulator for Essential Skills qualifications in Northern Ireland, seeks to ensure that the standards of assessments conducted by awarding organisations in N Ireland are appropriate.
A comparability study took place in October 2012 which examined a sample of Action-Based Activity templates and assessed portfolios from the three awarding organisations – City & Guilds, CCEA, and NOCN – that offer Essential Skills qualifications.
This aim of this study was to compare the opportunity for achievement and actual achievement of candidates taking Essential Skills Communication and Application of Number qualifications at Levels 1 and 2, within and across all three awarding organisations. The findings of the study can be accessed below:
