Assessment for qualifications: Level 6

The NCEA languages achievement standards at levels 1, 2, and 3 have been aligned with The New Zealand Curriculum. The registered standards are on the NZQA website.

A languages matrix overarches all the languages achievement standards.

Each individual language standard at level 1 is registered with a unique ID number.

Full information on the draft standards and the alignment process can be found on TKI: Alignment of NCEA standards with The New Zealand Curriculum.

NCEA level 1 achievement objectives

Five achievement standards can be used to assess languages learning at level 1. These are identified on the matrix, and reproduced in full below:

Each individual language standard at level 1 is separately identified by its unique ID number.

Achievement standards and achievement objectives

Learning languages has a single assessable achievement objective – communication – at each level. This is different from other learning areas or subjects, where learning is split into a number of achievement objectives that can be assessed individually or in combination. This means that each of the achievement standards assesses an aspect or aspects of the communication objective, not different objectives.

Portfolio-based assessment

Achievement standards 1.3 (AS90870, AS90875, AS90880, AS90885, AS90895, AS90905, AS90910) and 1.5 (AS90872, AS90877, AS90882, AS90887, AS90897, AS90907, AS90912) are assessed on the basis of interactions and writing that take place over a lengthy period of time. Students record/collect examples of their interactions/writing and present these at the required time. Teachers need to make sure that their students understand this requirement, and the conditions, early on in the school year.
