Moderation is one of the ways Careerforce maintains a consistent high-quality level of assessment. Successful moderation ensures decisions made by all assessors are consistent.
Careerforce specifies a range of unit standards for moderation each year as shown in our moderation five year plan.
All Careerforce assessors are required to participate in moderation.
Peer moderation workshops
Peer moderation provides an opportunity for assessors to check that their decisions are in line with those of other assessors nationwide. It also gives assessors the chance to generate new ideas, learn about different approaches to assessment and work through any issues.
Our workshops give assessors the chance to compare and critique each other’s assessment skills through peer moderation.
Each assessor brings three pieces of work to be reviewed. This process provides a venue to discuss and observe best practice. It also helps to ensure that all assessors are performing their role at the same high standard.
