Achievement standard material on CensusAtSchool
Teachers have been telling us that it is very hard to navigate in the landscape of new curriculum materials, achievement standards, exemplars, teaching resources and so on. Because everything is so scattered, it Is often almost impossible to find what you need.
To overcome this Tracey Meek and Lindsay Smith have put together a CensusAtSchool resource which starts with each achievement standard and then links to all relevant resources that we know about. We provide a summary of resources for each Achievement Standard providing links to NZQA, exemplars, TKI, PowerPoint presentations, teaching resources and background articles.Link:
To help us keep our achievement standards-centred resources and links up to date, if you come across something good that we have missed please email us:
While on the subject of changes to standards, assessment and worries about them, we can also pass on the following:
the randomisation test is only relevant to standard A3.11: Conduct an experiment
bootstrap/re-sampling confidence intervals are only relevant to standard A3.10: Use statistical methods to make a formal inference
