Making Assessor Judgements

Making Assessor Judgements Workshops are subject-specific and have been delivered over the last ten years. These workshops are available on request to a region or nationally.

Aims of the Making Assessor Judgements Workshops

  • To increase assessor confidence when making assessment judgments for internally assessed standards.
  • To discuss real samples of student work.
  • To engage in professional discussion with colleagues and the moderator about interpreting the standards.

Who should attend?

  • Assessors who need to improve their assessment judgements.
  • Assessors new to standards-based assessment and the NCEA.
  • Beginning assessors.

Presentation Slot/Guest Speaker

A request may also be made for a moderator to attend a regional or national meeting to speak on a topic associated with internal assessment. This could include such topics as particular strands within standards, levels (e.g. 1, 2 or 3), or methods of collecting evidence for assessment purposes. This option allows you to select a topic associated with the assessment of internally-assessed standards relevant to the audience. 

Aim: to offer targeted assessment support

  • Targeted subject-specific or generic assessment support, tailored to the audience.
  • Face-to-face or online.
  • Can be a half or full day event, or a speaking slot at an organised event.


  • To enable a range of professional dialogue to take place, a minimum of 10 participants is recommended, but we will consider requests where this is not possible.
  • The request must relate to the assessment of internally assessed standards. Support on teaching and learning or externally assessed standards is out of scope.
  • All requests for workshops are subject to moderator availability.
  • Requests for individual school or organisation support are unable to be provided.
  • To ensure we can fulfil your request, please give us as much notice as possible, ideally 10 weeks.
