The Learning Progressions Frameworks (LPF)

25/08/16

The Ministry has launched a new resource for teachers and school leaders – The Learning Progression Frameworks (LPF). All teachers of students in years 1–10 will be able to access the LPF.    

The LPF is an online tool that illustrates the significant steps that students take as they develop their expertise in reading, writing, and mathematics from Years 1–10, spanning levels 1–5 of the New Zealand Curriculum (NZC).

The LPF builds on the NZC, and it underpins the Progress and Consistency Tool (PaCT) for years 1–8 (curriculum levels 1–4), creating a powerful toolbox for planning and assessing progress.

The addition of curriculum level 5 means it can bridge the gap between primary and secondary schools to more effectively support a learner pathway. 

The LPF website contains interactive PLD modules.

An app has been launched that contains the PaCT years 1–8 illustrations. The app will be extended with the years 9–10 illustrations later this year. You can find the app on either the Apple Store or Google Play by searching for "learning progressions".
