2017 Digital Trials and Pilots evaluation » NZQA

NZQA’s findings from the 2017 NCEA Digital Trials and Pilots evaluation are being used to inform the 2018 project, as the organisation works towards having NCEA examinations available online by 2020.

As part of the Digital Trials and Pilots project, feedback was sought from the students, teachers, markers and examination centre managers who participated in the Trials and Pilots. This feedback has been valuable in providing insight into their experience, which is already informing the next steps NZQA takes with digital assessment in collaboration with schools and the wider education sector.
Feedback from students to the surveys shows we are on the right track. These are good indicative findings on which to build our future work.

Digital Assessment Vision: a design principles approach » NZQA

The New Zealand Qualifications Authority (NZQA) has initiated work to transform the way external assessment related to the National Certificate of Educational Achievement (NCEA) is offered, including making changes to the supporting operating model by moving towards digital assessment. 


While an important milestone signalling the direction and intent will be to have all NCEA examinations available online by 2020, our vision is for transformed assessment – a 21st century approach to assessment online for anyone, anytime.


NZQA’s 21st century approach to assessment will build on the pedagogical changes taking place in classrooms now and known, when implemented effectively, to improve student engagement in learning, student achievement and their readiness for higher education or employment.

United front needed to stop rise of contract cheating at universities

United front needed to stop rise of contract cheating at universities | Rubrics, Assessment and eProctoring in Higher Education | Scoop.it
New legislation, clearer student communication and increasingly sophisticated technology will be needed in the fight against proliferating “contract cheating” ser­vices, says Anthony McClaran, head of the Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency.

Contract cheating, where essay mills sell students ­bespoke assignments, essays and even doctoral theses, along with fake doctor’s certificates and ­degree authentication certificates, has emerged as a vexed issue for universities in much of the developed world.

Increasingly sophisticated tech­nology, the rise of the “sharing” economy and students who struggle to study in a language not their own have combined to jump-start contract cheating services, and campuses across Australia have been targeted with contract cheating leaflets, posters and ­online communications.

The federal government has been concerned about this trend, and TEQSA was provided with an additional $24.3 million across the next four years, including extra resources for the agency to crack down on contract cheating.

Mr McClaran said he expected the federal Department of Education and Training, with the Council of Australian Governments’ Education Council, would determine whe­ther it was feasible to establish consistent legislation across Australia to ­effectively outlaw the ­provision and advertising of cheating services.

“We support a move in that ­direction,” he said. “There is similar legislation in place in New ­Zealand.”

Certain Australian jurisdictions already have tackled the problem with advertising codes that prohibit the advertising of fraudulent services. “I think the question here is whether that can be brought ­to­gether in a nationally consistent ap­proach to making contract cheating illegal,” Mr McClaran said.
