NZCER has decided to no longer sell Essential Skills Assessments. They were developed more than a decade ago, and the way in which we source and use information has changed significantly since then. In that time New Zealand has moved to a new curriculum document, leaving behind the framework of Essential Skills that formed a part of earlier curriculum documents. NZCER has a commitment to providing high quality research-based products and we don’t believe Essential Skills continues to meet that standard.
We are investigating whether we could develop or source an alternative test or resource.
