English Language (formerly ESOL) Assessment Resources

Show: Assessment Support Material Homepage

Assessment resources for 28 (see matrix (DOCX, 13KB)) of the 2018 approved English Language unit standards at Foundation to Level 4 are available. These resources will provide a model to assist assessors to develop further tasks that promote quality assessment of English Language unit standards

They are intended to:

  • align with the New Zealand Certificates in English Language (version 2) graduate profile outcomes
  • be relevant to both the secondary and tertiary setting
  • make it easier for assessors to assess effectively, efficiently, and consistently.

These resources are intended as a guide only and it is expected that assessors will adapt these and develop assessments that are relevant to the context their assessment occurs in.
