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:
- 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.
- The teacher must discuss the report and their concerns with the Principal's Nominee.
- The Principal's Nominee:
- considers the teacher's concerns to check for factual accuracy and matters of clarity or professional judgement
- assembles the same materials that were sent for moderation, to support the appeal of the moderation report
- completes the Moderation Appeal Cover Sheet. Download either:
