NCEA Special Assessment Conditions

IEAG has prepared a response to the Review of Special Assessment Conditions for NCEA.

The Ministry of Education's and NZQA's review of the Special Assessment Conditions for NCEA  is in relation to students who have permanent or long term medical, sensory, physical or learning difficulties that they believe will impair their performance in internal and specified external assessment.

The review will look at equity of access to special assessment conditions, the effectiveness of support provided, the capacity of schools to manage special assessment condition requirements, the efficiency of systems for managing applications and the impact of technology on assessment.

IEAG's response can be read here.

Our response drew on Kia Orite -Achieving Equity, the New Zealand Code of Practice for an Inclusive Tertiary Education Environment for Students with Impairments, developed by the student organisation Achieve.

Information on Special Assessment Conditions for NCEA can be found on the Ministry of Education website
