Wright came in for some criticism after being at fault for both of Tottenham's goals in the 2-2 draw at Goodison Park and Moyes has laid the blame on the former Ipswich man.
Moyes feels Wright needs more time to get used to life at the club and that his self-esteem may have taken a blow by leaving Arsenal for Merseyside.
"In Richard's case it will take a bit of time," said Moyes.
"He should have saved both of the goals. It is harsh but that is the way we do things here.
"We deal with things like that and there is no hidden agenda. Obviously, that kind of thing cannot continue but he was the first to admit he was in the wrong.
"He was great at Ipswich and had an up and down year at Arsenal. But let's be fair, he played for a team that won the Double and worked with another great keeper, so it must have helped him.
"Taking the drop from Arsenal to Everton would have dented his confidence but he is still very young for a keeper.He is only 24 and David Seaman is 38, but we are sure he will progress. I have told him that.
"His self-esteem is down a bit having to drop down but he made a brave decision to come here."
