Roadshow: English Language - Supporting Consistent Assessment Practice

In November and December 2017, English Language (EL) roadshow events were held by NZQA National Qualifications Services, in collaboration with the Ministry of Education, TESOLANZ, NZCEL Providers Forum and the secondary school sector.

Due to popular demand, an additional EL roadshow will be held in Auckland at Ormiston Senior College on Saturday 7 April 2018.

The purpose of the event is to build sector capability in assessment by increasing awareness and use of:

  • NZ Certificates in English Language
  • English for Academic Purposes unit standards
  • English Language unit standards

and related assessment resources, services and requirements.

Please bring a laptop to support interactive sessions. These sessions will be on:

  • the placement of students and assessment of student work, using the Common European Framework of Reference language descriptors
  • designing English Language assessments.

For more information on the Supporting consistent English Language assessment practice event, please see the roadshow flyer (PDF, 99KB) and programme (PDF, 281KB).
