Note 15: assessment moderation

Understanding the process of moderation and how it can be used in schools is a driver for improvement of student learning outcomes.

Moderation enables teachers within a school to develop and apply a consistent and precise language of assessment which can be used by teachers, students and families to describe and discuss student learning.

This Professional Practice Note, together with the Practice Principles, may be a useful reference point for future planning and improvement and can support schools at all stages of implementing moderation for formative assessment.
