Evidence requirements for standards

NZQA encourages innovative ways of collecting student evidence that may be used for assessment purposes. This could include evidence that contributes to multiple standards (integrated assessment), or different modes of collecting evidence such as blogs, video clips, etc. 

Teachers are reminded that students submitting evidence beyond the requirements of a standard may impact on student workload. Additionally, a succinct response addressing standard criteria is preferable to a large volume of student evidence that may not necessarily deliver evidence of all the criteria of the standard(s) in question. 

For more information on gathering evidence, refer to Gathering evidence of achievement.

Digital submission of Languages materials for moderation

Please see the guide to making digital submissions (DOCX, 85KB).

It is important that students in the Interaction standards are clearly identified – this is beyond simply identifying the first speaker, e.g. if it is not video, then some sentences in English which give an indication of what the assessed speaker says are required.

Students within the App are labelled A – H, and labeling on the video files should correspond to this.
