Aromatawai – Assessment in te reo Māori

Kura and Māori Medium settings using Te Marautanga o Aotearoa and Ngā Whanaketanga Rumaki Māori are required to identify and report on the progress and achievement of their year 1–8 students in kōrero, pānui, tuhituhi and pāngarau. There are a number of assessment tools available, and others in development.

This page provides links to available assessment tools and reports on assessment in te reo Māori.

Information will be updated as new tools come available.

Using information to improve Māori educational success

This June 2016, report carried out by the Office of the Auditor-General, focuses on the use of information across the education sector to support Māori educational success. Although Māori educational achievement is improving overall, the report finds results for Māori students from roughly similar communities, being educated in roughly similar settings and circumstances, are very different. The report reinforces that schools must collect, analyse, and use information about Māori students to ensure that they are doing everything they can to give Māori students the best chance at a great education.

Assessment tool selector

A resource for teachers and schools to help them select the most appropriate assessment tool to suit their particular purpose. The selector gives information about assessment tools most frequently used in New Zealand schools, in every area of the curriculum up to and including year 10, allows teachers to compare different tools, and advises on whether commonly used assessment tools are available in te reo Māori.

Aromatawai ā-Paki

This project provides resources and information to support teachers working with children to progress the achievements of learners in kura kaupapa, wharekura, and whānau rumaki.

Its beginnings are linked with the Narrative Assessment programme, for students with special needs. However, the project has found another practical use under the authority of Te Marautanga o Aotearoa and the aspirations throughout each kura nationally.

This paper was commissioned by the Ministry of Education with the express task of presenting a Māori medium assessment position. A team of writers and contributors made up of experienced practitioners and leaders with explicit skills, knowledge and expertise of pedagogy, effective teacher practices, mātauranga Māori and aromatawai were invited to participate in a series of hui and wānanga in the development of this paper.
