Assessment Support Materials

Kia ora and welcome to the Tourism Māori Assessment Support Material.

These resources have been designed to assist teachers and tutors in assessing students against the relevant Tourism Māori 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.

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