Reporting in plain language

Reporting in plain language helps parents and whānau be well informed, to make sense of their child’s progress and achievement, and more able to support learning at home. Plain language written reporting is free of specific education language, as it is language that is understood easily. It is language that helps support respectful and trusting relationships between students, parents and whānau.

On the following pages you can find examples of reporting in plain language, categorised by subject and by year level. The examples given are for reporting on the National Standards (archived) areas of reading, writing, and mathematics and statistics. They follow the principles of effective reporting detailed elsewhere in these pages.

Here you can find a description of the processes for reporting in plain language.
