***NOTE: Primary ITO is no longer accepting assessment material for pre assessment moderation.
These should be sent directly to the Muka Tangata People, Food and Fibre WDC from the 4th October 2021 at national external moderation.
Moderation is a process of monitoring and evaluating assessment documentation and decisions to ensure that standards are applied validly and consistently to all learners.
Moderation exercises provide an ideal opportunity for schools to obtain structured collegial feedback on their teaching and assessment material. View more info on Moderation.
Pre Assessment Moderation
Pre-assessment moderation is conducted before an assessment takes place. The Assessment Material is quality assured (moderated) to ensure it meets the national standard before it can be used by learners.
We recommend schools use Primary ITO assessment tools wherever possible. However, where these are not available and schools are developing their own assessment resources, it is important to remember that these must be pre-moderated by Primary ITO before use.
Our Quality Assurance team will ensure that your assessment material is fit for purpose and meets the requirements of the unit standard.
Fees are plus GST and charged as follows:
- Level 2 and Level 3 unit standards $120 per hour
Post Assessment Moderation
Post Assessment Moderation is the process of checking assessor decisions after assessment has taken place to ensure they meet the national standard and are fair valid and consistent.
Primary ITO moderates schools through postal moderation and /or Cluster Moderation Days.
Cluster moderations are an opportunity for teachers to meet together, receive peer moderation and be part of a community of best practice.
Cluster moderation days are coming up in the following locations:
► Palmerston North, Palmerston Boys High School, 11th August 2021
► Hawera, Hawera High School, 18th Aug 2021
