Review of Assessment of Learning unit standards

Closed 31 May 2017

NZQA National Qualifications Services invites feedback on 11 new and reviewed unit standards in the Assessment of Learning domain.

Following the listing of new qualifications in Assessment in February 2016, a suite of seven unit standards has been developed, comprising both new and reviewed standards. This is to ensure there is a pathway suitable for those who wish to use unit standards as assessment tools in programmes towards the new qualifications. The opportunity was also taken to review four other standards from the Assessment of Learning domain.

This review is linked to the development of standards for the Adult and Tertiary Teaching qualifications and has taken place alongside the review of Adult Education and Training and Generic Education and Training standards.

Important note: These draft standards are for consultation purposes only. No assessment can occur against these standards until the listed versions are published.
