CG Standards

We develop our qualifications according to our Code of Standards. The Code of Practice sets out our approach to Medical coding, HIM assessment and demonstrates our aim of transparency in our dealing with those who use our assessments.

We regularly review and update Medical Coding Skill Set, to make sure they reflect the latest developments in teaching and learning and meet schools’ needs around the world.

  • We believe education works best when curriculum, teaching, learning and assessment are closely aligned.
  • Each assessment related to Medical coding domain will state the knowledge, understanding and skills which candidates are expected to acquire and on which they may be assessed.
  • To get the CodersGrade, must clear the assessment and gets the CMCC Certification-Certified Medical Coding Consultant.
  • The CMCC certifications will span not only knowledge and understanding but also skills
  • We aim to provide question papers and mark schemes that produce valid and reliable tests which have a positive educational impact and are practicable for all concerned
  • Question papers will be consistent with the syllabus and scheme of assessment in terms of the maximum mark, the duration, the assessment objectives assessed and the learning content assessed
  • The Examiners for a component in an examination series will be led by a Principal Examiner, who will take appropriate steps to ensure accuracy and consistency in marking
  • Experience in the likely performance of candidates will normally involve three years’ recent and relevant teaching experience at the time when the Examiner applied to mark
  • By the time marking and moderation are completed, we have a mark for each candidate on each component they have taken. We then have two further tasks to complete in order to determine the candidate’s result from these marks. First, we have to combine the marks for the components into a single mark for the syllabus for each candidate. This is called the aggregation of marks. It will place the candidates into a single order of merit for the syllabus Second, we have to divide the order of merit into grades by applying the grade thresholds27. For example, all candidates whose mark is at or above the grade B threshold, but below the grade A threshold, will be awarded a grade B. The process of deciding what the grade thresholds should be is called grading
  • Will provide clear documentation, procedures and guidance to support centres in meeting their responsibilities relating to the security, conduct and administration of examinations and internal assessments.
  • Cases of suspected malpractice, whether by candidates, centre staff or others, will be investigated. Where malpractice is found to have occurred, action will be taken.
