The Educational Assessment Research Unit (EARU) works towards improving the New Zealand educational curriculum.
We provide the education sector with information on Year 4 and Year 8 students' development. This is undertaken using the National Monitoring Study of Student Achievement (NMSSA). Before NMSSA, we worked on the National Education Monitoring Project (NEMP).
EARU has a strong connection to NZ and global organisations. We are highly regarded within the educational sector.
Our small team of 9 dedicated individuals is based in Dunedin, New Zealand.
