The updated Assessment resources maps are a resource for schools and teachers to help select the most appropriate assessment tool to suit their particular purposes. They illustrate the year levels and/or curriculum levels each tool is fit for and the most frequently used tools in New Zealand schools for reading, writing, and mathematics.
Schools and teachers can select a range of formal and informal assessment methods to use in their day to day teaching programmes and when making overall teacher judgments (OTJs) of students' progress and achievement in relation to National Standards. The Assessment resources Maps, updated in 2016, describe a range of assessment tools that could be used for this purpose.
- the maps should be read in combination with the Assessment tool selector in order to determine whether a tool is fit for purpose
- the map is not intended to limit a school's choice of tools
- inclusion of a tool does not indicate endorsement by the Ministry of Education.
