Definition of verification
« on: July 24, 2015, 10:33:15 PM »
Reference to the ETDP SETA Policy here.

Verification is a planned and systematic process for validating learner achievements and ensuring compliance to SAQA and the SETA certification criteria. It is a means of ensuring that two or more providers delivering the same unit standards and/or qualifications are assessing consistently to the same standard, using valid instruments, and meeting the national standard registered on the NQF.

SAQA refers to this function as „external moderation‟. SAQA uses the term „verification‟ to mean the checking, by an ETQA, of the accuracy of the information on learner results before certification is authorised. Verification of learner achievements for standards and qualifications allocated to it by SAQA is conducted and managed by the ETDQA, and its verification process includes both external moderation and the verification of information.
