The NDA looks a bit scary to me, as a non-lawyer. The statisticians aren't lawyers either.Taylor continued: “Your letter and comments to the press have led to widespread misunderstanding and suspicion of Ofqual’s process. I would ask that you take all measures you can to correct this impression.”
Ofqual also published a copy of the NDA. “This is important not least because the suggestion in your letter calls into question the reputations of all those who did take part in the advisory group and who, I am sure, would not have signed up to the restrictions you have incorrectly alleged.”
Now there are a load of exemptions that follow but crikey. I don't care if somebody else signs that- I ain't, not without asking some questions- which Ofqual apparently didn't answer. Issues therefore remained unaddressed, and disaster followed.CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION
1.1 In this Agreement Confidential Information means all business, strategic,
financial, technical, editorial, marketing or operational information of whatever
kind (whether oral, written, or in any other form) relating to the Information
Provider which may be supplied by, or on behalf of, The Information Provider
(whether before or after this Agreement is actually signed by the Parties) for
the purpose of the Project.
The stakes were too high to allow this to go ahead, the time to resign was when she was faced with Williamson's insane demands about grade inflation. That said, she oversaw a total car-crash.Collier, the chief regulator and Ofqual chief executive, oversaw the development of the flawed exams algorithm that was scrapped after it downgraded nearly 40% of A-level results. The algorithm was created after ministers insisted on avoiding grade inflation.
Hard to see her as anything other than a political appointment intended to reduce the influence of the educational establishment - the blob - and her lack of knowledge or experience of education meant she was wholly unsuited to the job.Collier earned a £200,000 salary and led Ofqual for four years, having worked previously in procurement for the civil service as the chief executive of Crown Commercial Service, but faced criticism for her lack of background in education.
I've said before that nothing short of murder will make any of them feel they have to resign, but how many murders would there have to be before their supporters realise that they are the most incompetent shower ever to form a government?crabcakes_windermere wrote: ↑Tue Sep 01, 2020 8:39 pmLo and behold, Gav has been telling Melton Mowbrays...
