Examination boards in higher education

The value of a diploma must be beyond all doubt. Both students and society have a right to be assured of that. This is an issue in which examination boards play a crucial role. On 20 May 2015 the Inspectorate of Education held the Further Improvement conference, which shares its title with the inquiry by the Inspectorate into the performance of higher-education examination boards. The results were published in the spring of this year. The report provides an outline of where examination boards currently stand, and indicates where further improvements can be made.
