Assessment for Learning


Enhancing the way assessment is used in the classroom promotes learning and wellbeing, and informs local curriculum design, raising progress and achievement for ākonga and students. Assessment for learning is about developing the capabilities to design and use assessment for its core purpose, to support further learning.

It involves the focused and timely gathering, analysis, interpretation, and use of information that can provide evidence of ākonga progress. The practice of assessment for learning works best when ākonga and their whānau are active participants in conversations about learner strengths and progress, including:
- what is being learned
- how the learning connects to their lives the next steps in their learning
- how they can contribute to and support the construction of meaningful learning pathways.  

The assessment information is used to celebrate progress and strengths, design next learning opportunities, adjust strategies and identify additional support needs early.
