A number of frameworks for validation have previously been proposed but a coherent model with an accompanying set of methods that can be applied to general qualifications such as GCS Es and A levels has previously been absent. This seminar will report on recent work at Cambridge Assessment to develop and pilot a validation framework and methodology for general qualifications.

Whilst this work moves us towards a refined approach to validation for general assessments, various challenges remain, for example, in relation to the practicalities of gathering such evidence operationally on a routine basis, and with regard to the amount of evidence required to argue that an assessment is sufficiently valid.
