AAT to publish new pass rate statistics
18 June 2018
The AAT has said that it plans to publish one-off pass rates on 22 June to show that the AQ2016 assessments are now working well.
Director of education Suzie Webb (pictured) told delegates at the recent training providers’ conference that there had been real issues with two of the new assessments and stressed the AAT has worked hard to ‘put it right’. New versions of these assessments were launched earlier this year and these changes have had an immediate effect, with a big improvement in pass rates. The plan now is to show off pass rates up until the end of April.
Webb (pictured) said that the association will not be resting on its laurels and will continually monitor the situation going forward.
She also revealed that the AAT plans to provide the breakdown in grades alongside the 12-monthly pass rates, which are issued at the end of March and September each year. Going forward, both students, colleges and employers will know how many students achieve a pass, merit or distinction.
In addition, the AAT is planning to improve its online study support experience. A new portal will be available around September time, Webb explained. It is envisaged that this will be a one-stop shop and provide a more tailored experience.
