Student Assessment Procedures

The student assessment handbook outlines student rights and responsibilities as regards how Riccarton High School manages assessment towards national qualifications such as the NCEA. It is an important document to refer to, especially if you are unsure of any assessment procedures or rules. As well as consulting the handbook, if you have any questions or issues regarding assessment regulations and rules, these should be raised with the subject teacher and/or Head of Department in the first instance, or alternatively the relevant Dean.

The student assessment handbook provides detailed information on the NCEA requirements, and student rights and responsibilities regarding assessment. Topics include NCEA criteria, endorsements, university entrance, scholarship, absences, due dates, internal moderation, the appeals process, prelim exams, financial assistance and more.
