NZQA Christ's College Booklet

External moderation

Procedures to check that the school is assessing at the same standard as other schools nationally.

All internally assessed achievement standards and unit standards are subject to moderation by NZQA to ensure that internal school based assessment standards reflect the national standard. This is a check of the school’s systems and it is not a check of individual students. Schools will be advised of a submission date by NZQA and the achievement and unit standards to be moderated. Before that date, for each selected achievement standard, HoDs will provide the Assistant Principal Curriculum with the assessment activity, the assessment schedule, evidence of internal moderation and samples of marked student work. The moderation report received from NZQA will be used to inform internal moderation decisions. HoDs of subjects who receive moderation reports that identify problems will be required to provide documentary evidence of the steps that they have instigated to rectify the identified problems. ● Schools will be advised by NZQA of a submission date and the achievement standards to be moderated. Standards can be nominated in the previous year ● For each selected achievement standard, HoDs will provide the assessment activity, the assessment schedule and eight samples of marked student work. If there are fewer than eight students who participated in the standard, then all assessment must be submitted ● HoDs will be required to submit moderation through the NZQA Moderation App ● It is the job of the Assistant Principal to ensure appropriate tracking of the collection, posting, receiving, processing and returning of moderated materials ● The moderation report received from NZQA will be used to inform internal moderation decisions. HoDs of subjects who receive moderation reports that identify problems will be required to provide documentary evidence of the steps that they have implemented to rectify the identified problems. Random Selection of Samples ● For each standard which is moderated, individual teachers/marking teams must use a random list which will be used to draw eight samples for Achievement Standards or four samples for Unit Standards ● The process for random selection of samples will be advised by the Assistant Principal and implemented by the HoDs ● ALL departments must provide a central location where all assessments from a standard are archived together.
