Updates to Level 3 Achievement Standards

The Ministry of Education published updated versions for the Level 3 Achievement Standards in most subjects in November, 2016. The changes appear to be limited to a new planned review date of 31 December 2018, and Explanatory Note 1 now including a reference to Te Marautanga o Aotearoa for all subjects except Te Reo, English and Learning Languages.

However, assessors are advised to check the revised Level 3 standards relating to their programmes against the previous versions. Both the new and the previous versions appear together on the relevant NZQA subject pages.

Moderator Newsletters

Moderator Newsletters will now be published in Term One and Term Three of the school year. Any urgent information related to assessment and moderation will continue to be conveyed by circulars and through the Principal’s Nominee emails.

Best Practice Workshops

NZQA still offers assessor support for the internal standards through a variety of programmes such as face to face and online workshops, and guest speakers. The schedule for Economics workshops is available on the NZQA website.
