As part of an NZQA moderation workshop, participants including myself marked a variety of Digital Technology standards from around the country. In several cases work that had been given Achieved/Merit/Excellence by some schools would have been FAILED in my own and other participants schools. Some work was so poor I would have failed it as a Year 9 assignment. The internal assessment gap between schools is HUGE, and does not give me great confidence in the integrity of the system. I expect that for a teacher without content knowledge or expertise virtually anything could gain Achieved.
After all you don’t need a computing qualification or any experience to teach Digital Technologies do you?
