Exam policies: Policy/Document Generator
The Exams Office has launched an exams-related Policy/Document Generator - the only online exams policy/document generator tool available in the UK.
Please note that the Generator is currently being updated for the 2017/18 academic year so cannot be used at this time
Members can still access word templates of all our policies by visiting the Policy templates page of our website.
The following policies are contained within this self-assessment tool
What does the Generator do?
This tool enables members to create exams-related policies/documents which reflect exams practice in their centre. Exams officers are able to generate accurate and bespoke documents in a matter of minutes, saving valuable time.
These documents are quality assured by an annual review of regulations and an updated version provided each academic year.
By using this tool, members are conducting a self-assessment. and producing quality documents which accurately reflect what happens in their centre.
How does the Generator work?
Policies are loaded onto our server, from which exams officers may be asked to answer a series of questions/statements as 'Yes/Agree' or 'No/Disagree'. There may also be free text boxes to explain arrangements which relate to individual ways of working within a centre.
Responses provided create a bespoke document relevant to the centre. Responses and comments can be changed as many times as required, and the bespoke document regenerated.
Each policy/document is contained on its' own web page with a 'How to use' guide.
Why should I use the Generator?
Apart from saving you time and producing quality documents, this tool helps to ensure that you are producing policies which address JCQ and Ofqual regulations and requirements.
By using this tool, you are conducting a self-assessment.
The Exams Office goes beyond the use of simple policy templates as previously offered by the Department for Education
Which exams-related policies are included in the Generator?
Currently, the following policies/documents are available:
All the above are also provided as Word templates
The Exams Office will continually add policies over time. We will also endeavour to produce policies as requested by our members.
Are these documents JCQ and Ofqual compliant?
The Exams Office produces all policies in line with JCQ and Ofqual regulations and requirements. We have met with JCQ and our awarding body partners to make them aware of this facility. We will endeavour to ensure that all stakeholders are aware that policies produced via our 'Policy/Document Generator' are yearly-reviewed self-assessments.
Further policies/documents will be provided in the generator tool over time.
No other organisation offers such an innovative self-assessment tool
The Exams Office takes no responsibility for any outcomes in schools/colleges as a result of the information provided on our website or within our documentation. It is the responsibility of schools/colleges to apply this information as they deem necessary within their own centre. You should always contact/refer to the relevant awarding body for the most accurate and up-to-date information regarding their qualifications.
