Internal and external assessment Definition
« on: August 08, 2015, 02:36:55 PM »
Internal assessment is assessment conducted by a provider. If the certificate of learner achievement is to be recognised nationally on the NQF, legislation requires that a quality assurance body recognised by SAQA must quality assure this assessment. Bodies recognised in this context include SETA ETQAs, the three Quality Councils, (CHE, Umalusi and QCTO) and some professional bodies.

Some such bodies conduct external examinations/assessments (for example, many professional bodies conduct Board Exams). However, many do not conduct assessment, but monitor and moderate external assessments set and conducted by other organisations. (for example, Umalusi monitors and moderates the bodies conducting the Senior Certificate Examination and NQF Level 1 ABET Examinations, the QCTO monitors and moderates the work of its Assessment Quality Partners).

The ETDQA, like most SETA ETQAs, monitors and moderates the assessments conducted by its accredited providers. It expects providers to conduct both internal assessment and internal moderation in compliance with its policies, and it validates the results through its external verification processes. This kind of verification is sometimes called „external moderation‟.
