Assessment (including Examination) Rules for Schools with Consent to Assess 2016 (EXPIRED)

8.9 Credit Inclusion

The provisions for credit inclusion will be reviewed to determine the extent to which credit inclusion aligns with the purpose and direction for the NCEA qualifications, the listing requirement for qualifications on the New Zealand Qualifications Framework, and policy directions for Foundation Education. No new applications for Credit Inclusion will be considered until the review is completed. Current agreements for Credit Inclusion have been extended until 31 March 2017.

  1. NCEA has provision for recognition of credit equivalents from other qualifications or awards that are quality assured.
  2. NZQA publishes an approved list of qualifications and awards recognised for credit inclusion.
  3. Credit equivalents from credit inclusion will not appear on the Record of Achievement, may be used only once, and do not contribute to the University Entrance Level 3 requirements (the Waikato Certificate of Studies, English, however contributes to University Entrance writing and reading requirements).
  4. If a School wishes to access credit inclusion for any students it should complete the correct NZQA form and send it to NZQA with the applicable student results.
  5. Credit equivalents from qualifications and awards on the approved list are only recognised if they were gained within two years prior to the year of application for credit inclusion.
