Consistency of Graduate Outcomes

Consistency of Graduate Outcomes

 Overview

This QED Associates workshop is intended for people with a primary or supporting role in collating sufficient evidence of consistency of graduate outcomes for New Zealand Qualifications Authority, whether or not there is a Consistency Review scheduled for that qualification.

 

NZQA have been running Consistency Reviews since 2015 after introducing them in 2014 as part of the Targeted Review of Qualifications, (TRoQ), for all new New Zealand qualifications, (not National Qualifications).  

QED Directors have studied NZQA's material and attended the NZQA workshop to best understand their actual requirements and the lived experience for providers. We have also sought and reflected on feedback from PTEs that have been through the Consistency Review process and have also analysed the NZQA reports.  

So QED has developed this Consistency of Graduate Outcomes workshop in response to PTE concern that NZQA isn't running enough of their introduction to their Assuring Consistency workshops to meet demand.  

The intended outcomes are that participants can: 

  1. List NZQA’s main requirements for Consistency Review

  2. Explain to colleagues how Consistency Review fits into your quality assurance

  3. Identify sufficient evidence for a confident Consistency Review

  4. Prepare analysis of your evidence for your Consistency Reviewer

  5. Participate successfully in the Consistency Review forum.

The day starts with context about NZQA and their requirements and how consistency fits into an effective overall Quality Assurance system. In the afternoon we focus on gathering and analysing sufficient evidence for a specific qualification - hopefully you can bring yours along. This section also includes lessons from current consistency reports to help plan your consistency success.
