  • Moderation


Moderation is the process of teachers sharing their expectations and understanding of standards with each other in order to improve the consistency of their decisions about student learning. In these pages you can find information on the theory of moderation, and practical advice on the ways schools might go about setting up moderation processes.

The Progress and Consistency Tool (PaCT) frameworks break down mathematics, reading, and writing into different aspects and prompt teachers to notice what students know and can do. The frameworks give teachers a common tool for moderation discussions with colleagues.

For information about using the PaCT go to pactinfo.education.govt.nz or contact pact.feedback@education.govt.nz.

Resources from the 2014 and 2015 series of workshops on the moderation of Overall Teacher Judgments are available in the OTJ section of this website.
