OFQUAL Consultation

Ofqual has recently published a consultation on designing and developing accessible

assessments and a related news story. The proposed guidance will support awarding organisations to

design and develop assessments that meet Ofqual’s rules on accessibility. Students with particular

backgrounds, needs and disabilities are among those who stand to gain. The draft guidance includes

how to:

• avoid unnecessary burden on Learners when measuring the assessment construct

• use accessible, clear and plain language in producing assessments to avoid any

unfair disadvantage

• design and develop accessible layout

• use source material, context, images and colour in ways that maximise accessibility

• design and develop assessments to meet reasonable adjustments required by disabled

students including those using assistive technology


Ofqual is keen to get views from a wide range of respondents, including SEND organisations, on the

content and style of the proposed new guidance.
