NCEA Listening External Assessments in 2020

Updated Assessment Specifications are available for the external standards that assess the understanding of a language through listening and responding to recorded passages.

These specifications now state, “This year in the digital format, candidates will listen to recordings in the same way as they would if completing the standard as a paper-based examination. A recording will be played aloud to all candidates at the same time.”

This statement replaces a previous message that audio would be embedded in examination software.
