Language Common Assessment Tasks (LCATs) – Cook Islands Māori, Korean and Lea-Faka Tonga

The LCATs are planned to take place as already rescheduled, from 20 to 22 October (19 to 21 in the Cook Islands schools). Schools and kura should deliver the LCATs as planned wherever possible.

NZQA considered changes to the assessment dates, but is conscious of the pressure on school timetables in Term 4, and the disruption any changes would cause for schools that have planned other activities around the CATs. On balance, NZQA has decided to retain the existing dates.

Preparations in the event of further disruption

Please bear in mind that schools need to be prepared if there are any changes in response to the evolving COVID-19 situation. Specifically, schools and kura need to continue to collect standard-specific, quality assured evidence for possible Derived Grades or Unexpected Event Grades.

You can use the External Assessment Evidence Gathering Templates or any other practice assessment activity. Go to the relevant subject page on the NZQA website (Cook Islands Māori, Korean or Lea-Faka Tonga) and look under the heading Resources for Externally Assessed Standards to find ‘Evidence Gathering Templates’.

NZQA is continually reviewing the COVID-19 situation and our response, and will provide any additional advice or information required.
