I have been quite astonished by the way vocational ICT qulaifications have become to be assessed. It seems to me that there is too cosy a relationship between teachers and exam boards and students. I do believe the Subject ICT is worthwhile and tthet there is some amazing teaching taking place but when you get teachers trying to deliver the exam where they have a 100% decision over the final mark then quite frankly it becomes a "cheats charter". And what about the A Level Exam with the 3 week window where the teachers can see the data set that they are not supposed to see and students can browse the web for find the solutions before they have even walked into the exam room! It does seem to me that there is a present and menacing moral hazard where the Headteacher will commend the dishonest teacher who inflates the grade to an A and, conversely, look unfavourably upon the honest teacher who has insisted that the lazy student should get a C grade - or God forbid lower than a C. Come on, be brave - lets all tell what is really happening out there!!
