A new resource, the ‘Moderation Hub’, has been launched on Glow to provide practitioners at every level, from every sector, regardless of role and remit, with a package of support for all aspects of the moderation cycle. It is a virtual learning environment providing:
Professional learning on moderation (in the form of presentations and discussion/workshop tasks)
An in-depth look at each step of the moderation cycle
A one-stop shop for key documentation (including quality assurance and moderation documents and self-evaluation proformas)
The moderation cycle, which replaces the NAR flowchart, outlines each stage of the moderation process and enables practitioners to develop a shared understanding of standards and expectations in the broad general education.
In Falkirk, we would expect all of our practitioners to engage in this moderation process to support them to arrive at valid and reliable decisions on learners’ progress within the levels of a Curriculum for excellence.
