What's happening in the NZAI world?

Postponement of NZAI National Seminar April 2020 

Balancing Learning and Assessment – two sides of the same coin

It will come as no surprise to you, in these troubling times, that we have decided to postpone our Assessment Seminar, until either Thursday October 8th or until next year. A decision about this will be made by the NZAI executive in July this year, when it is to be hoped that the Covid-19 situation has at the least become clearer, if not started to settle down.

Postponing the Seminar was a difficult decision and one that has been made after careful thought and deliberation. Our primary concern is to protect the health and well-being of attendees.  

All those who have registered for the Seminar will automatically receive a full refund of any registration fees paid.
 
We thank you for your understanding and look forward to seeing you at the Seminar once we have rescheduled. Any new information will immediately go up on this website.

Regional NZAI meetings

We have held a number of regional NZAI meetings in schools around the country this year. Through these we offer a chance to meet with colleagues, find out about and discuss current assessment initiatives and ways in which our practices might be sharpened, and help develop a local network of educators interested in effective assessment.

The last meeting was in Auckland on December 3rd at Pt Chevalier School.

Michael Absolum talked about the new directions in education which have arisen from the recommendations by the Ministerial Advisory Group on Curriculum, Progress and Achievement, what’s new in assessment tools, new PLD priorities for 2020 and the implications for schools. 

The presentation notes, along with many others from previous national and regional seminars, can be found here in the Knowledge Centre.
