Ofqual Centre Assessment Standards Scrutiny

In September 2021 we introduced our Centre Assessment Standards Scrutiny (CASS) Strategy, developed to meet Ofqual's CASS requirements for all centre-marked assessments. These requirements aim to improve the quality assurance controls which awarding organisations provide to centres offering qualifications regulated by Ofqual.

Strategy for Centre Assessment Standards Scrutiny

SQA’s CASS Strategy outlines our approach to ensure standards of internal assessment are maintained across centres and qualifications over time.
