responsibilities for assessment. These guidelines apply to all internal assessments
(tests, exams, assignments) that generate results for NCEA.

Your teacher needs to know that all the work you have handed in is your own work.
Please refer to your assessment handbook for further explanation of authenticity and the relevant procedures
you must complete
Missed Assessments or not Meeting Deadlines:
It is important to hand all assignments in on time.
Please refer to your assessment handbook, for the relevant procedures you must complete should you miss
an assessment or deadline.
Appeals:
You are able to appeal assessment decisions.
Please refer to your assessment handbook for the relevant procedures you must complete.
Your Dean is your first point of contact for these processes.
