Restrictions on the assessment and moderation of student work

Under Rule 13 of the EER rules, there are restrictions on the assessment and moderation of student work that apply to Category 4 providers, and those PTEs in Category 3, as notified by NZQA.

Within six weeks of the publication of the relevant EER report, the Category 4 provider must appoint a Category 1 or 2 provider to:

  • carry out pre-assessment moderation of all assessment materials being used to assess students, prior to those materials being used for assessment of the students; and
  • either carry out the assessment and moderation of all student work, or verify the assessment and moderation of all student work that is carried out by the institution to which Rule 13.1 applies.

Rule 13 of the EER rules includes the specific criteria for appointing the Category 1 or 2 provider and NZQA’s role in the arrangements.
