Examples of assessing level 2/3 programmes of learning using re-contextualised achievement standards

Using re-contextualised achievement standards

The Agribusiness learning area could be assessed using other domains (that is, Geography, Science, Accounting etc.) Achievement standards that have been re-contextualised into Agribusiness contexts in their Agribusiness programme or in to their own existing courses. 

Agribusiness programmes integrate concepts and learning from achievement objectives in biology, science, economics, geography, and technology. For this reason, learning can be assessed using achievement standards from a range of subjects as well as those from agribusiness. Teachers have considerable scope to select standards that will assess valued learning and engage their students.

Learning described by this objectives could be assessed using any one of these achievement standards.
