Appeal(ing) ...

Last month I had an interesting appeal come in via email.

The appeal was regarding a national selection process, which gives centres a level of self semi-autonomy. Candidates have to take a standardisation test, which once accomplished ensures that they only get one external standards verification sample every three years. Ironically, if they do not take the test, the centre can still gain the same status.

Anyway, reading the appeal was an interesting and eye opening experience. To say that based on a mistaken premise this soul managed a couple of pages of appeal, which was mostly misplaced proves why they were unsuccessful.

This is not the first I have ever seen, but it shows that out there, centres have educators who labour under some interesting views of how a qualification is to be assessed.

I feel sorry for their students.
