Big Thumbs Up for Online Moderation ....

This year was the first year that I have submitted work for moderation that is totally online.

This is the standard form for submitting moderation - link here - and this has normally had to be sent along with physical copies of everything - the student's drawings, printouts of research and printouts of everything they have completed. This had to be put together with a paper copy of the planning for each standard being moderated.  It was a LOT of paper to send away and printing off my planning, which was all on a Google site with links to all sorts of resources, was just messy.

So in February this year, the first all online moderation was sent for DVC.
On the moderation form, the planning on my site was linked to from the standard description and the student work was all on their own Google sites, so this could be linked to from their names listed on the form. The assessment sheets were linked to from the grades listed on the sheet.
A quick check to make sure all the links worked and it was all open to the public and the forms were shared with NZQA.

This was so much easier and went really smoothly.

I received the feedback today, which was also online. This is a change too as they used to send the sheets back to us in the post.

Here is the feedback from the two Level 1 standards that were moderated for DVC this year.





Needless to say, I am absolutely delighted with the feedback, especially this bit ....



Happy Dance !!!
