Using evidence for learning

Understanding and managing the range of information that counts as evidence of student learning and achievement can be daunting, and it requires teachers and school leaders to be confident in their assessment literacy.

This set of resources on Assessment Online aims to cover the understandings and skills educators need in order to:

  • gather dependable information about the status of a student’s (or group of students’) learning
  • accurately aggregate and present information in order for it to be easily understood
  • interpret and evaluate information for individuals and groups of students in order to decide on what to do next to support learning
  • present and share information to build partnerships for learning (with parents, whānau, colleagues, boards)
  • set challenging but achievable targets for improved student achievement.
