Reader Writer volunteers
Learning Support Department Request
The students on the Learning Support Register are entitled to a variety of Special Assessment Conditions when they sit both internal and external assessments. These can be any combination of reader, writer, computer, extra time and separate accommodation. These conditions are applied for to NZQA and granted following testing and/ or recommendations from specialists. They are put in place to enable each student to reach their full potential.
We are calling for volunteers to help us with provision of this support. It would involve coming into school and assisting a student (under strict NZQA guidelines) as either a reader and/ or a writer during an assessment. The Senior School Practice assessments will take place during Week 5 (Monday 27-31st August) Term 3 and the external NZQA examinations late November /early December and can occur at any time during the school day. Ideally we would like to be able to get the same person to work with the same student for both the practice and external exams but realise that this is not always possible due to prior commitments. We would however be able to give you advance notice of when your assistance would be required.
If you have some spare time and are interested in helping us please email firstname.lastname@example.org by the end of this term.
