NCEA level 3 achievement objectives

Five achievement standards can be used to assess languages learning at level 3 with the exception of NZSL. There are four achievement standards for NZSL and these are all internally assessed.

These are identified on the languages matrix and reproduced in full below:

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 3.3 (91535, 91540, 91545, 91550, 91555, 91560, 91565, 91570, 91824) and 3.5 (91537, 91542, 91547, 91552, 91557, 91562, 91567, 91572, 91825) are assessed on the basis of interactions and writing/signing that take place over a lengthy period of time. Students record/collect examples of their interactions/writing/signing 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.
