Question #218497

Discuss principles for successful moderation (8)

Expert's answer

The principle of moderation are:

  • it is conducted in a spirit of professional learning and quality improvement (expect some dissonance)
  • teachers (inside moderators) have appropriate knowledge of content area, assessment practices, and policies and procedures
  • it is carried out regularly
  • it is begun at the planning stage - prior to teaching and assessment (ensuring teachers share understandings about important learning and indicators of it)
  • appropriate assessment tasks are decided on, or designed, aligned to actual learning
  • equivalent assessments are agreed, when desired, for cross-class or cross-school comparisons (for example, cluster groups of schools for professional development purposes)
  • moderation processes lead to improved learning and assessment
  • moderators outside of the school (for example, clusters of schools, facilitators, invited teachers from other schools) may be periodically involved to give independent feedback.
