Moderation is the process of assessing the suitability of an entity to hold an Internet website name (the URL address), the suitability of the name itself, and determining whether the proposed name is appropriate in relationship to other websites and the purpose of the website itself. Moderation of the govt.nz domain name protects the credibility of government websites and email addresses. It ensures that only government agencies (central and local) use websites with the govt.nz domain, and that agencies have logical and relevant website addresses. Moderation of .govt.nz is the joint responsibility of the State Services Commission (SSC) and the Association of Local Government Information Managers (ALGIM).
the moderation of a process or activity requires an independent evaluation, or broader perspective of plans and their implementation. Moderation relates and compares outcomes against internal or external benchmarks.
This is a process for checking tests that have been marked in school rather than by an external examiner. It is done to make sure the marking is uniform, fair and of the same standard in all schools. The Moderation is carried out by a Moderator who works with teachers in a cluster of schools. The Moderator oversees the marking system used by teachers to ensure everyone is marking according to the approved national guidelines. He/she also acts as a guide if those marking the papers have any queries.
Moderation is a process which involves assessors in discussing and reaching agreement about assessment processes and outcomes in a particular industry or industry sector. This enables assessors to develop a shared understanding of the requirements of specific Training Packages, including the relevant competency standards and assessment guidelines, the nature of evidence, how evidence is collected and the basis on which assessment decisions are made.
Moderation procedures can assist teachers to use rubrics consistently, and thus to improve the reliability of their judgements. Moderation procedures may involve discussion of students' performances and the ratings that should be applied to those performances. Sometimes, a measure of student performance is obtained by another assessment procedure (e.g. an 'external' test or moderator) and the results of the external judgement and teachers' judgements are reconciled. It allows teachers to compare their judgements with colleagues across grades, schools and systems. The process of moderation enhances accountability and confidence in teacher judgements.
Moderation involves groups of teachers looking at examples of work, discussing the extent to which these meet the expected standard and coming to an agreement on the level of attainment represented by each example. The teachers may be from within a school or department or from different schools.
process of quality assurance by which assessment judgements are standardised and verified for awarding achievements - through credit and/or qualifications; local, regional and national arrangements may involve centres (internal moderation) and the awarding body (external moderation)

Some newsgroups and mailing lists are "moderated". In these cases all articles posted to the group are checked by a Moderator. The moderator is free to reject the article. This is usually only done if the article violates the group's charter (e.g. is off-topic like Spam, or is too long) edit the article. This is relatively unusual, but the moderator may correct spelling, factual errors, or remove information supplied in a previous post. Accept the article. In this case the article is forwarded to the newsgroup and mailing list, and enters the public domain. Moderation is a good way of improving the Signal to Noise ratio in a group, but is hard work for the moderators who frequently do the job voluntarily and are unpaid.
