Senior Years Course Guide
The main purpose of school-based assessment is to improve student’s learning and the quality of learning programmes by providing feedback to students about their progress with learning and, diagnostic evidence about learning for teachers. This process should be evident in teaching and learning programmes.
Assessment data will also be used to fulfil the statutory obligation to report on student progress to the school community in line with the school reporting policy.
In the senior years (Y11-13) assessment data will:
• Provide NZQA with information on students’ achievements for their record of learning and other national qualifications.
• Provide future education or training providers and employers with information on students’ achievements.
