NZQA reviews the assessment practices of secondary schools approximately every three years, to ensure that internal assessment is accurate, consistent and to the national standard.
To find out about the stages in a school assessment systems check, see:
Follow-up action plan
Where external moderation or the assessment systems check reveals problems, NZQA may, as apporpriate:
- require further material to be submitted for moderation
- conduct a further systems check
- conduct an investigation
- begin non-compliance procedures.
More information can be found in the Assessment and Examination Rules and Procedures for Secondary Schools (5.2.2).
