Otago College of Education Dean, Associate Professor Vivienne Anderson says the College is delighted to be continuing this nationally significant work.
Te Kura Ākau Taitoka – the University of Otago College of Education and New Zealand Council for Educational Research (NZCER) are pleased to announce that they have been contracted to collaborate on the new curriculum insights and progress study for the Ministry of Education.
This study builds on the National Monitoring Study of Student Achievement (NMSSA) and earlier National Education Monitoring Project (NEMP) and is designed to generate powerful insights about learning and teaching in New Zealand primary schools that will shape policy and inform classroom practice. The new study reflects the New Zealand Curriculum refresh design changes and will provide a rich understanding of student progress across the learning pathway.
Otago College of Education Dean, Associate Professor Vivienne Anderson says, “We are delighted to be continuing this nationally significant work that began at Otago in 1995 with NEMP and we look forward to the new opportunities that the expanded study brings.”
Schools selected to be part of the study sample will soon receive letters with more information.
