Special Assessment Conditions – information for parents and caregivers

What are Special Assessment Conditions?

Special Assessment Conditions (SAC) provide extra help for approved students when they are being assessed for their NCEA so that barriers to achievement can be removed and they then have a fair opportunity to achieve credits. The support is used for internal standards and external (exams) standards.

Examples of SAC are use of a writer or computer, rest breaks, Braille or enlarged papers, or reader.

If a person is providing support with reading or writing, they may not guide the student or explain the assessment.

Only students approved by NZQA can use SAC for assessment for NCEA.
