ASSESSMENT POLICY AND PROCEDURES
The Assessment Policy and Procedures as set out by Waimate High School will be followed for Year 11 Digital Technology.
You are expected to attend class on a regular basis as set out in the school policy on attendance.
Assessment work completed must be your own work. You and your caregivers will be expected to sign authenticity declarations and, where appropriate, submit working drafts. Where evidence indicates work presented is not your own work the policy will be followed.
Appeals of grades awarded are to be made within 5 school days of the return of assessed work. Where a grade is appealed, school policy will be followed.
DUE DATE means just that! Late work will not be accepted for assessment unless exceptional circumstances exist and extension has been granted by the HOD before the due date.
You will be required to verify the grades that you have been awarded by signing the result slip attached to each piece of internally assessed work. Students will also be required to verify the final grades awarded that are submitted to NZQA.
Internal Achievement Standards – Compassionate consideration for a student who is absent from an internal assessment may be made if there is sufficient evidence available from other work related to the same skill/content and no other assessment opportunity is available.
External Achievement Standards – NZQA guidelines will be followed.
Retention of Student Work
Your internal assessment material will be retained by the department until it is no longer required for moderation purposes.
- Ensure you understand the assessment programme and policy.
- Check thoroughly the accuracy of the assessment by teachers when work is returned.
- Ensure you understand requirements of each assessment being completed.
- Discuss problems/concerns with the Teacher/HOD.
School policy states that further assessment opportunities for reporting purposes will only be available to those students, who did not achieve credit, and where further learning has occurred and it is feasible and/or practicable to offer a further assessment opportunity.
