Moderation research

This paper, by Rosemary Hipkins and Edith Hodgen, discusses an analysis of teacher survey responses about school moderation practice in relation to its use in professional learning, and considers the implications of the findings in the light of a literature review on moderation and teacher learning that has recently been undertaken. The paper was presented at the Symposium on Assessment and Learner Outcomes, Wellington, September 1–3, 2011.
