Quick Reference

1 A qualification, or credits towards a qualification, are said to have currency if they are generally recognized and accepted.

2 In assessment, and particularly the assessment of skills, the currency of a candidate's achievement or level of competence is an important factor. For example, they may possess experience or a qualification in information technology which they gained many years before, and which does not therefore attest to their ability to work with current systems.
