Digital submission of evidence

With the launch of the Digital Moderation Application last year, the submission of student evidence for external moderation in digital form has increased substantially. It has risen from 5% the previous year, to 30% at present, and continues to increase as the relative ease of the process becomes apparent.

For information on how to submit student evidence in digital form, the Moderation Online page on the NZQA website provides the required steps and links to Quick Reference Guides for schools.


The following clarifications have recently been updated: 90842, 90848, 91384 and 91385. These can be viewed on the Business Studies page on the NZQA website.

New Business Studies standards

Seven new internally assessed standards have been added to the Business Studies domain across levels 2 and 3.
