Impact area 2.1:

Assessment and credentialing support innovation in teaching and preparation for a changing world of work

At NZQA we recognise the role that assessment and credentialing play in supporting innovation in teaching and how these can engage learners in lifelong learning, therefore preparing them for a changing world of work. We want assessment to be a positive and seamless experience that is aligned with the learning methods used. NZQA seeks to extend the assessment capabilities of teachers and assure high-quality, authentic responses from innovation and assessment. Good assessment practice supports the achievement of qualification outcomes.

It is important that the assessment methods used allow learners to show what they have learnt. This may be through assessments that cover multiple areas of learning. It may enable learners to make greater connections between subject areas to see how this learning is used in practice. A positive assessment experience incorporating the above factors may assist in promoting an interest in lifelong learning.

The following two intermediate outcomes will assist in achieving this impact area:
