Review of the Mātauranga Māori Evaluative Quality Assurance approach
Closed 18 Mar 2016
NZQA is seeking feedback on the proposed changes to the Mātauranga Māori Evaluative Quality Assurance (MM EQA) approach.
The proposed guidelines describe the quality assurance approval and rating processes for education organisations when they use the Te Hono o Te Kahurangi framework and evaluative tools and processes.
Feedback on the proposed Te Hono o Te Kahurangi guidelines (PDF, 1.1MB) is open from 7-18 March 2016.
What is changing?
In 2015, a reformed Te Hono o Te Kahurangi advisory group, made up of representatives from the Māori sector, proposed changes that included:
- renaming the approach from MM EQA to Te Hono o Te Kahurangi
- making kaupapa the heart of the approach
- moving from a wharenui to a whare ako
- aligning the tools, the quality assurance processes and guidelines to the proposed whare ako framework.
- updating Te Hono o Te Kahurangi graphics and illustrations.
How do I give feedback?
Please forward any feedback to the following email address: MaoriStrategy@nzqa.govt.nz
The Te Hono o Te Kahurangi Advisory Group will consider the feedback in March. NZQA will then publish the final version of the guidelines on the NZQA website.
NZQA will also publish a document highlighting the feedback received and the changes made to the guidelines.
What happens after the feedback?
From April 2016, the Te Hono o Te Kahurangi whare ako framework and evaluative tools and processes will be launched. These will replace the current Mātauranga Māori Evaluative Quality Assurance approach.
There will be a transition process, and NZQA will work with the sector on applying these guidelines to the relevant applications.
