Readings and resource materials on assessment

Assessment Online

This key community covers assessment in the classroom, effective use of evidence, and reporting to families and whānau. It offers news, assessment tools and resources, research, a glossary, FAQ, and related links.

The linked site Consider the evidence promotes ‘evidence-driven decision making for secondary schools’ and supports secondary educators in making best use of evidence to improve student achievement.

For a view of how assessment can best serve learning, see Directions for Assessment in New Zealand, a report by Michael Absolum, Lester Flockton, John Hattie, 
Rosemary Hipkins, and 
Ian Reid (also available as a Word or PDF file).
