The verification of Higher National (HN) qualifications is performed at Unit level. Centres selected for verification of the Graded Units will be given at least four weeks notice and will receive full instructions for the preparation of the material for either visiting or central verification.
A Verifier will typically review work in progress (incomplete evidence) during any verification visit; sampling (where possible) a minimum of three single credit Units.
This sample should comprise work across all Assessors and Internal Verifiers.
Centres may wish to use SQA's Assessment Exemplars for assessing candidates. These are available on the secure section of SQA's website and have been fully prior verified.
A centre may prefer to produce their own instruments of assessment for HN Units. In such cases, the SQA recommend that any assessment materials are forwarded to the Verification team for prior verification before the candidates take the assessments.
