Informing teachers across our cluster about NCEA

Every year, the Woolf Fisher research team presents to teachers and leaders across our cluster reading, writing and maths asttle results from the previous year.  From these statistics, we saw results that presented a number of challenges, particularly in year 9.  Because these statistics only share results from years 1- 10, I collaborated with Russell Dunn to share with schools our senior results.

Here is the presentation:

 

  It was important to explain NCEA as some of our primary school colleagues may not know much about it.  The SOLO framework was also important to emphasis because it helped us to share the key language of learning we use to prepare our students for NCEA and to allow our colleagues to think about what language they could use in the primary schools as linked to SOLO.

At the end of the presentation, a number of staff approached me about coming to talk to their school staff meetings about NCEA, which I am looking forward to.

Supporting our learners by making the 'why' real.
