Exam head says assessment system encouraged teachers to boost marks | Education | guardian.co.uk:

"The head of one of the leading exam boards has told MPs investigating last summer's GCSE English furore he believes teachers have been encouraged to boost marks by government measures that hold them to account based on their pupils' results.

Andrew Hall, the chief executive of the AQA exam board told the House of Commons education select committee he did not believe teachers were cheating in the way they marked controlled assessment modules, but he said they were in a position where "their judgments were influenced by the pressures of the accountability system"."
