This field records whether the award of the accreditation is in some way dependent on the choices made by the student. A value of 1 should be used wherever student choice can affect whether they gain the accreditation listed. A value of 1 should not be used solely because the gaining of accreditation requires the student to pass an assessment if all students will undergo the assessment as part of the course.
Particular care should be taken over accreditation types recording exemptions from professional examinations, such as those in accountancy. ACCDEPEND should be returned as 0 if all students will gain at least one exemption upon successful completion of the course. A value of 1 should not be used solely because students’ option choices will affect the number of exemptions from professional examinations that they will gain.
