Overall teacher judgment

An overall teacher judgment (OTJ) involves drawing on and applying the evidence gathered up to a particular point in time in order to make an overall judgment about a student’s progress and achievement. This section includes guidance for teachers on the types of information and the definitions of achievement they can bring to bear on making their overall teacher judgments, and ways to increase the dependability of the judgments.

The Progress and Consistency Tool (PaCT) supports teacher judgments on student progress and achievement in relation to the New Zealand Curriculum’s National Standards. The richly-illustrated frameworks break down mathematics, reading and writing into different aspects and prompt teachers to notice what students know and can do. The engine of the PaCT captures teacher judgments on the aspects and recommends an overall judgment that teachers can confirm or review.

A series of PaCT and Learning Progression Frameworks workshops for schools will be held in 2018. Details will be made available as soon as possible.

If you are interested in using the PaCT go to pactinfo.education.govt.nz or contact pact.feedback@education.govt.nz.
