Mau Rākau

Kia ora and welcome to the Mau Rākau assessment support material.

These resources have been designed to assist teachers and tutors in assessing students against the relevant Mau Rākau unit standards listed on the Directory of Assessment Standards (DAS).

Alternatively, they can be used as a guide to help assessors develop their own tasks and assessment schedules.

Show all Field Māori Assessment Support Materials

Each assessment guide is made up of:

  • Assessment activity instruction sheet
  • Candidate's guide sheet
  • Assessment activity
  • Assessment schedule guide.

The guides have been developed to support the assessment of the Mau Rākau unit standards Levels 1 - 4.

NZQA would like to acknowledge the efforts of all those whose work and experience have yielded this practical resource.

To find out which unit standards your learning institute has consent to assess, you can check the NZQA website’s consent to assess scope for providers.

Mau Rākau Standards and Assessment Guides

The following assessment guides have been developed for use in assessing unit standards in the Mau Rākau subfield.

Video files for some of the unit standards are also available.  These video files are intended as a guideline for the performance assessment components of the Mau Rākau unit standards.

Students from Manaaiktanga Aotearoa Trust and Western Heights High School are featured in this video.  Special acknowledgement also goes to Tukiterangi Curtis, for his contribution.
