04/06/15

This report outlines findings from information collected in 2013 and describes trends observed over the four years of implementation to date. Five types of data were collected at two time points. Copies of schools’ 2013 student achievement targets and 2012 analysis of variance reports were collected in the middle of the year. At the end of the year, Overall Teacher Judgments (OTJs) in reading, writing, and mathematics were collected for all students, and judgements from the PaCT mathematics national trial were collected for a sample of students. Copies of end-of-year reports to parents, families, and whānau were obtained and an online survey of principals was conducted.

National Standards – Inquiry for accelerated progress

04/08/14

The Ministry of Education has developed a set of resources that respond to the national aggregate Public Achievement Information data. These resources have been created to support schools to inquire into what needs to be done differently in order to accelerate progress for those students requiring additional help to meet expectations.

There is a progress and achievement inquiry tool that enables you to compare your school’s achievement picture with the national picture. There is also a tool to help you focus your inquiry on students not meeting expected levels and to plan specific teaching actions using strategies and resources to support this. Resources for parents and whānau to use at home to help support their child’s learning are also provided.

 If you have any questions please contact literacy.mathematics@minedu.govt.nz
