An investigation of moderation practices within a faculty of education

Beutel, Denise A., Adie, Lenore E., & Lloyd, Margaret M. (2013) An investigation of moderation practices within a faculty of education. In Singapore 2013 September Conference Proceedings : ICEASS International Conference on Education and Social Sciences, Singapore, pp. 43-49.


Moderation of student assessment is a critical component of teaching and learning in contemporary universities. In higher education, moderation is usually governed by university-wide policies and practices. However, in Australia, moderation processes will now be guided by the new national university accreditation authority, Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency (TEQSA). In light of this reform, the purpose of this qualitative study was to identify and analyse current moderation practices operating within a faculty of education at a large urban university in eastern Australia.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
