What is the Understanding IQA Course About?

The Level 4 Award in Understanding the Internal Quality Assurance of Assessment Processes and Practice is designed to provide learners with a comprehensive understanding of the principles and practices related to internal quality assurance in assessments. This qualification focuses on theoretical knowledge rather than practical assessment skills.

By completing this course, individuals will gain a deep understanding of assessment principles and techniques, enabling them to evaluate and analyse the quality of assessments within an organisation. The course covers essential aspects such as the legal and regulatory framework governing internal quality assurance. Learners will develop expertise in understanding and interpreting internal quality assurance policies and procedures.

The Level 4 Award in Understanding the Internal Quality Assurance of Assessment Processes and Practice does not qualify learners to perform assessments or make assessment decisions. However, it equips individuals with the necessary theoretical foundation to contribute effectively to the improvement and maintenance of assessment standards. By applying their knowledge, learners can ensure that assessments meet the required quality standards and promote fairness in the assessment process.

If you need to be able to quality assure assessments, you will need either the Level 4 Award in the Internal Quality Assurance of Asssessment Processes and Practice, or the Level 4 Certificate in Leading the Internal Quality Assurance of Assessment Processes and Practice.
