Curriculum Progress Tools (LPF and PaCT) support for 2018

The Learning Progression Frameworks (LPF) and Progress and Consistency Tool (PaCT), are significant tools that enable a focus on curriculum progress. 

The LPF supports teachers’ understanding of progress. It describes, through annotated illustrations of student work, the significant signposts students move through as they develop their expertise in reading, writing and mathematics in years 1 to 10. The frameworks illustrate rich teaching and learning activities in everyday classroom programmes, and prompt teachers to notice what students know and can do.

Using the frameworks of the LPF, PaCT provides a dependable measure of achievement that can be used to track student progress. It synthesises teachers’ judgments on aspects of reading, writing, and mathematics to generate a score for individual students which can be displayed in relation to the levels of the New Zealand Curriculum. This makes the progress and achievement of students visible, alongside curriculum expectations, and supports reporting to students, parents, families, whānau, and Boards of Trustees. Together, the two tools provide valuable support for teaching and learning.

The Consortium for Professional Learning, on behalf of the Ministry of Education, wishes to extend an invitation to attend a professional learning opportunity in your region for LPF and PaCT. As these workshops coincide with some exciting progress features and reports that will become available in October, we will take the opportunity to share these enhancements with you.
