The Office of Qualifications and Examinations Regulation (Ofqual) must manage all of the risks associated with a wide range of qualifications, examinations and assessments in England. Aleph Insights developed a new risk taxonomy for Ofqual, to enable it to improve the way it labels and tracks these risks, helping it to identify emerging problems. We also clearly mapped out and specified the detailed system changes that would be required to implement these changes, enabling Ofqual’s development team to schedule the required work.
