Guidelines for presenting Technology work for moderation

Teacher Judgements

When forwarding assessment material for moderation, teachers should make it clear how they made their judgements.

The following strategies (or combinations of) could be used to explain assessment judgements:

  • Examples of possible student responses could be inserted on the assessment schedule. Individual assessment schedules (that is, one for each student) could be highlighted if particular student responses were evidenced.
  • Checklists to show what the teacher was looking for when making a judgement. These could be highlighted in a similar way to that described above.
  • The assessment schedule could be developed to include spaces where appropriate so that, for individual students, teachers can enter details of the evidence which supports the judgements made.

The following might also help to support the teacher judgement:

  • Teacher notes added to the student work (for example, "Post it" notes or teacher - student feedback sheets).
  • Teacher diary or running record of conversations or observations that occurred during the project.

Electronic Submissions

When submitting evidence electronically, it should be organised so that it includes:

  • A  clearly labelled folder that shows the standard being moderated, for example, "AS 91059."
  • Clearly labelled sub folders for each student submission, for example, "Alan",  "Jane" etc.

Ideally, each student folder would include one pdf document that is a collation of all of the student’s evidence to support the standard being assessed.  This should read like a hard copy of a portfolio or report, that is, it should be organised in a logical sequence.  

Digital Technologies submissions must also include an electronic copy of the outcome (ie website, video, program etc).
