Review of Careerforce CMR


Careerforce has completed the review of the Consent and Moderation Requirements (CMR) above.


Date new version published                                                             June 2016


The next CMR review is planned to take place 2021.


Summary of Review


The CMR has been reviewed to enable more flexible assessment practices to be used in assessing against the unit standards within its scope, while preserving the integrity of the outcomes of assessment.


All organisations with consent to assess against standards covered by CMR 0024 (as well as CMRs 0004 and 0222) were contacted in the consultation process.


In the previous review, CMRs 0004 and 0222 were amended to mirror CMR 0024.  In this review, CMRs 0004 and 0222 have been republished so that they continue to mirror CMR 0024, keeping the intended single set of consent and moderation requirements for all standards in Careerforce’s coverage during the period leading up to the migration of all standards to CMR 0024.


Compliance with new requirements


Requirements for consent to assess will apply with effect from June 2016.


Moderation system requirements will apply with effect from June 2016.


Organisations with consent to assess will be expected to be able to demonstrate compliance with the CMR from December 2016 onwards.
