Who is the Te Reo Māori assessment designed for?

The Te Reo Māori assessment has been designed for students in Years 4 to 9 who are learning te reo Māori in English-medium settings. The assessment is based on a bank of questions that cover curriculum levels 1 to 3.

The assessment is adaptive, meaning that the content of the assessment adapts to the ability level of the student. The trialing undertaken as part of the assessment development process found that the assessment could provide appropriate content for nearly all students involved in the trials.

Students for whom the assessment might not be well suited include those who are new to New Zealand and/or have had little or no experience of te reo Māori, and those who speak te reo Māori often and/or have had intensive opportunities to learn and practise reo.
