Rethinking reporting to parents


Evaluation Associates was contracted by the Ministry of Education to review and redevelop the resources for reporting to parents and whānau on Assessment Online. Mary Chamberlain, in consultation with our team of facilitators, worked to redefine the principles of reporting to parents, presenting it as information sharing rather than just reporting.


After consultation with facilitators and focus groups of leaders and teachers, the following resources were developed and put up on Assessment Online.


These resources are well used by New Zealand teachers and have been shared on Twitter and other social networks. They are a go-to resource for schools when thinking about how to share information with their parent community.
