Literacy and Numeracy unit standards

COVID-19 update: Remote collection of evidence

In response to the impacts caused by COVID-19 on assessment, NZQA has published Guidance for Literacy and Numeracy unit standards - remote collection of evidence (PDF, 196KB). This evidence needs to be embedded in the learning activities that are part of the planned teaching and learning.

Proposed new assessment standards

As part of the National Certificate in Educational Achievement (NCEA) Change Package, new English-medium Literacy and Numeracy assessment standards have been developed by the Ministry of Education (MoE). Consultation on the draft standards is open 18 November – 18 December 2020. Further information, and the online feedback form, is available at the MoE’s Citizen Space website.

Upcoming review

The next review of Literacy and Numeracy unit standards (numbers 26622-26627) is scheduled to occur by 31 December 2021.
