The Guardian covers a paper by former Ofqual chair Roger Taylor published by CPP, providing “reflections on qualifications and the pandemic".

Roger Taylor says it was wrong to blame the algorithm that took account of prior attainment and school performance.

“The mistakes were made by humans, not machines,” Taylor said. “The problem was not the algorithm, it was what we were trying to do with it: it was human decision-making that failed.”
