The Assessment and Moderation team at NZQA offer a range of support options for assessors/teachers to improve their assessment practice. Over the last ten years, they have delivered a workshop that aims to improve assessor confidence in making assessor judgements i.e. assigning the correct grade to student work submitted for a particular standard.
The Assessment Judgement Tool (AJT) is intended to be an online tool that allows assessors to upload samples of student work, share in closed groups, enter grades for this work and then to compare judgements and contribute towards a discussion thread.
The purpose of the AJT is to provide assessor support to improve internal assessment judgements by providing a digital platform that will allow assessors to get feedback on their own judgements, compare their decisions with others and to discuss grades for student evidence online.
Teachers will be able to post student evidence and wait for feedback or they can select a subject and standard and then be presented with a sample of student work. After posting their grade decision assessors they can then see how others have graded the evidence and enter a discussion thread.
The greatest difficulty teachers said they had was finding a suitable peer to review their assessment judgements; especially in small, rural and isolated schools or for small subjects. This tool is intended to solve that problem.
