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 members, and parents and whānau.
Our national surveys have become significant gauges of changes in our schools, and in the lives of teachers and principals. They are important sources of information for representative groups, the Ministry of Education, other government agencies, and the public. They are funded by the Government Grant from the Ministry of Education.
Thank you to everyone who participated in the 2019 survey of primary and intermediate schools. The survey has now closed and our team is looking working on analysing the data for a report that will be released in the first half of 2020.
All reports and articles from the national surveys are in the table, with the latest at the top.
