School-wide assessment systems

How much assessment is too much assessment? Or not enough?
Are you getting the most out of the assessment information you have?

Make sure that your assessment makes a real difference to teaching and learning.

We support schools to establish or refine assessment systems which:

      • help set teaching and learning priorities
      • support teachers to group for needs
      • support students to develop learning goals
      • support schools to develop a culture of shared responsibility
      • contribute to teacher judgments for reporting to parents, boards and the MoE
      • provide evidence for school review


We can offer you practical support to enable you to:

      • collect and collate reliable data
      • develop quality moderation systems
      • manipulate and sort data
      • display data using charts and graphs
      • calculate effect sizes to show value-added
      • use data to improve teaching and learning

 We will work with you to determine your needs and priorities, and formulate a plan of action.
