HN Administration and IT: Graded Unit 1 (HH9M 34) – updated ASPs and SOLAR assessments

For the HN Administration and IT: Graded Unit 1 (HH9M 34), two new versions of paper 1 (Objective response questions) have been created and uploaded to SOLAR. The dynamically-generated objective response questions for paper 1 have been withdrawn. This means centres will have a choice between two versions of paper 1, rather than paper 1 being generated dynamically for each candidate in SOLAR.  

The same updated questions have been included in the hard copy assessment support packs (ASPs), with the old questions removed.

In both SOLAR and hard copy ASPs, paper 2 has not been altered. This means assessments in SOLAR mirror the hard copy ASPs.

As we told you in November 2019, paper 1 multiple response questions now show the learner that there is more than one correct response.

Another important reminder is that the minimum threshold scores for paper 1 and paper 2 have been removed. Learners’ grades are calculated by aggregated score across both papers.
