*Please note: For mid-flight learners we expect that a TAG (component or qualification-level) will be requested by Pearson during the learner’s year of certification. At the time of writing, this will apply only to those units which were due to be assessed between 1 August 2020 – 31 August 2021, including external assessments, in line with Ofqual’s regulation, the VCRF.
For internal assessments this means that all units scheduled to be completed between these dates (but were not fully assessed) should now be ‘flagged’ to us using the reduced assessment functionality - ‘Z flag’. This has previously been referred to as permitted assessment reductions. This functionality will allow us to understand which units were not completed this year due to the disruption experienced. We continue to work with the DfE and Ofqual to finalise the approach to 2022 which will enable us to communicate with some certainty how grades will be determined for mid-flight learners.
For internal assessments that have taken place fully, please report the unit grade achieved using the interim claim function.
Internally assessed units that are due to be assessed next academic year should not have anything reported against them, as they have not yet been assessed, and were not due to be assessed this academic year, so are not eligible for a Teacher Assessed Grade.
