Managing National Assessment (MNA) report

The school’s NZQA School Relationship Manager writes a report after the Managing National Assessment visit.

Report process

After NZQA internal review, the report is sent to the school’s Principal and Principal’s Nominee within six weeks of the visit. The school has two weeks to clarify any issues of accuracy or misunderstanding.

If the school indicates the report is factually inaccurate or that it comments on matters outside its mandate, NZQA considers the comments and may amend the report.

A copy of the final report is then sent to the Chair of the Board of Trustees and is published on this website. To find an MNA report for a school, see Find a school and its MNA report.

Report format

The report includes

  • comments on the effectiveness of the school’s management of assessment practice, moderation, data and communication
  • a summary of the review findings and any actions required for the school to maintain its consent to assess
  • an appendix summarising the school’s actions to address requirements or recommendations made in the previous MNA report.
