Free chief examiner reports
We publish marking window reports for each Functional Skills subject every 8 weeks. The Chief Examiner provides details on the positives and negatives of each marking window to guide you to areas that are doing well and not so well. These are generic reports but give you a good indication of areas to concentrate on and, alongside your free ForSkills materials, should help you identify where learners need support.
