Sir John Dunford's Independent Commission into Malpractice has launched a Call for Evidence to seek responses on the extent and drivers of malpractice in the examinations system (both general and vocational).
Although incidents of malpractice remain relatively low, they can have a negative impact on the fairness of the examination system as well as public confidence. Each year, exam boards have to take steps to mitigate as far as possible the effect of malpractice, for example if a school or college has accidentally or purposefully opened a pack of examination papers early.
The Independent Commission into Malpractice was launched in July 2018 to consider the nature and extent of malpractice in the examinations system and to make recommendations to all stakeholders in the examinations system to help reduce and deter malpractice.
The deadline for submissions is noon, Monday 18th March 2019. Contribute to the call for evidence here, or via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
