NZCER began regular surveys of primary schools in 1989, focusing on the impact of the educational reforms that began then. In 2003, we added secondary schools. We survey each schooling level every 3 years, and we ask questions of principals, teachers, Board of Trustees
Our national surveys have become significant gauges of what is happening in our schools. They are important sources of information for the teaching profession, the Ministry of Education and other government agencies, and the public. They are funded by Te Pae Tawhiti, NZCER's Government Grant from the Ministry of Education.
Thank you to everyone who participated in the 2019 survey of primary and intermediate schools. Our report for English-medium primary schools is now available. Below you can download the summary, full report, and individual sections.
