Appeal a moderation report

A teacher has the right to appeal the moderation decisions contained in a moderation report for a standard.

The stages in the appeal process are as follows:

  1. The teacher reviews the moderation report from NZQA, which is available via the School Provider Login, and identifies the areas of the report that they wish to appeal.
  2. The teacher must discuss the report and their concerns with the Principal's Nominee.
  3. The Principal's Nominee:
  • sends the Moderation Appeal Cover Sheet, along with the materials noted on the cover sheet to:
    Assessment and Moderation Services
    New Zealand Qualifications Authority
    125 The Terrace
    Wellington 6011


  1. An appeal cannot proceed without inclusion of the original moderation materials.
  2. The Principal's Nominee can expect a response within six weeks.
