You might find it helpful to carry out a self-assessment to establish to what extent your existing processes and documentation meet the requirements of the different stages of internal verification, as defined in the preceding sections of the toolkit. A pro forma is provided to facilitate this, listing the required elements of internal verification and allowing you to add your existing processes and records and actions to address any gaps.

There are also three examples of completed IV Self-Assessment and Evidence Log Forms provided:

Example 1: Lead verifier model

This example is based on a model where members of staff are given responsibility for leading on internal verification of particular Units. It shows you how you could use the recording forms provided in the previous sections of the toolkit as part of internal verification processes.

Example 2: Team peer review model - through existing processes

This example is based on a peer review model, where all members of teaching staff have responsibility for both assessing and internally verifying Units. In this example, internal verification is integrated into existing processes for managing internal assessment. Some of the existing documentation can be used to evidence the internal verification process, but exemplars from the toolkit are used to address gaps.

Example 3: Single assessor departments

If you are the only teacher/lecturer in your centre delivering a subject, the standard models of internal verification will not be appropriate. Arrangements can be made with other centres, through clusters or networks, to collaborate on internal verification. This example gives you some guidance on how this could be approached.
