Abstract

Quality assurance within local educational institutions has been under the spotlight in recent years. In particular these institutions are increasingly subjected to minimum standards specified by controlling bodies such as the Higher Education Quality Committee and others. The moderation of examination papers is an important quality assurance activity to ensure that an examination paper's standard, content, span and marking are fair and reasonable. This paper describes a sampling plan to determine the number of answer books to be checked to confirm that individual marks were awarded correctly. The sampling procedure relates the confidence that marks awarded in a set of examination books meets a specified minimum standard to the number of books moderated.

Gehalteversekering binne plaaslike opvoedkundige instellings word toenemend onderwerp aan minimum standaarde soos neergelê deur die Kwaliteitskomitee vir Hoër Onderwys en ander. Die moderering van eksamenantwoordstelle is 'n belangrike gehalteversekeringsaktiwiteit wat verseker dat 'n eksamen se standaard, inhoud, bestek en nasien regverdig en redelik is. Die artikel beskryf 'n steekproefplan vir die proses om individueel toegekende punte vir korrektheid na te gaan. Die voorgestelde prosedure gee die verband tussen die sekerheid dat die punte toegeken deur die eksaminator voldoen aan 'n gespesifieerde minimum standaard en die aantal boeke wat gemodereer moet word (steekproefgrootte).
