Foreword

Examinations and certification are of critical concern to small states that are faced with the challenge of balancing the imperative of national goals and priorities with the pressures of external standards and criteria to ensure marketability of local qualifications. The challenges faced by small states to ensure that assessment and qualifications are carried out by methods that are relevant, efficient, economical and fair are compounded by difficulties that are inherent in their limited human and financial resources.
