Findings from the NZCER National Survey of Secondary Schools 2009
This report draws on data from the three-yearly NZCER National Survey of Secondary Schools, with a particular focus on new data gathered in the 2009 survey round. We asked principals, teachers, trustees, and parents to respond to a set of statements about the National Certificate of Educational Achievement (NCEA). The findings show support for the qualification has consolidated since 2006.
A number of changes have been made to NCEA since the 2006 survey, such as the endorsement of certificates with merit or excellence, and we asked principals and teachers a series of questions about those changes.
