Moderation and Assessment Project--South West. A Presentation of a Model for Moderating Pupils' Work That Is Teacher Assessed, Developed in England, UK.
Radnor, Hilary
The Moderation and Assessment Project, South West, was an outgrowth of the Technical and Vocational Educational Initiative of the government of the United Kingdom that attempted to develop more courses with vocational relevance for adolescents. Growing from research projects under the Moderation and Assessment project, a new model of moderation is proposed. The new moderation, the reconciliation model of moderation, emphasizes that assessment/moderation is integral in the planning and teaching of courses and continuous with the process of delivery. Moderation by teachers in the context of a public examination allows for the monitoring and validation of teacher assessments of students. The proposed model emphasizes that moderation comes from and is responsible to both inside and external interests in the institution, and relies on a plurality of judgments. It is oriented to quality control, as it signals confidence and trust in teachers. Assessment and moderation are emphasized as serious management and staff training issues. Three figures illustrate the discussion. (Contains 12 references.) (SLD)
