These reports provide information on what Year 4 and Year 8 students know and can do in these learning areas, how they are achieving against the New Zealand Curriculum, progress made by students between Year 4 and Year 8, and differences between subgroups. Factors that may influence achievement are examined. The reports also provide a specific focus on the achievement of the Ministry of Education’s priority learner groups: Mäori, Pasifika and students with special education needs.
