NCEA markers on lookout for memorised or plagiarised answers in 2017 school exams

This has been happening for a year or two in the Digital Technology Externals, but looks like it will roll-out across all Learning areas of the NZC for the 2107 NCEA. NCEA assessment documentation warned Digital Technologies teachers in 2016 that externally assessed reports must be in a student’s own words and that suspicion of plagiarism would result in an N (Not Achieved) grade.

This becomes an issue for our subject as External Assessments—especially if using digitally submission of documents—receives no specific feedback or marking schedule, so if an ‘N’ is awarded there is no indication on the script why the grade was given.

The following broadcast on RadioNZ spells out the policy which may effect those subjects that have till this point relied upon model answers in the exam preparation.
