School stories – a variety of approaches to assessment


We are preparing to close this site soon as this content has now moved to Tāhūrangi.

Tāhūrangi is the new online curriculum hub for Te Tāhuhu o te Mātauranga | Ministry of Education.


These stories are from schools that have thought carefully about their teaching, learning and assessment systems. They have chosen different paths that suit their contexts and communities. While it's not possible to directly translate processes and practices from one context to another, these stories provide ideas and inspiration and directions for change. 

The message from each of the schools is that none of these stories is of a finished and final product. Their ideas and systems are in a constant state of review and evaluation, always in the service of improved learning for their students.

This Education Gazette article from 27 August 2018, Reporting on progress supports next learning steps, describes on how two Southland primary schools are measuring and reporting progress across the curriculum, using the Progress and Consistency Tool.
