High quality tertiary education providers have good quality assurance processes in place
29 Mar 2017
Following commentary today on a TEU survey of academic staff and subsequent academic staff commentary, NZQA notes that high quality tertiary education providers have good processes in place to ensure that cheating is detected and will not allow students to pass assessments where they have not met the required standard.
NZQA urges anyone who has concerns about assessment practices in non-university tertiary education organisations to come forward so that we can investigate.
Plagiarism, cheating, or allowing students to gain credit when it is not warranted is unacceptable.
NZQA takes extremely seriously its role of ensuring that non-university tertiary education organisations comply with quality assurance requirements. We expect providers to have and follow their own robust quality management processes.
Where NZQA finds any problems, either as a result of a complaint or our own monitoring activities, firm action is taken – ranging from the requirement for improvement plans right through to deregistering organisations.
