Annual Report on NCEA & New Zealand Scholarship Data & Statistics

New Zealand's national system of assessment and qualifications for secondary school students produces a great deal of information that can be used to monitor the performance of the school system itself, and of the diverse range of students who are engaged in senior secondary education.

Each year NZQA produces its annual statistics report - Annual Report on NCEA & New Zealand Scholarship Data & Statistics. This report focuses on the previous year's assessments, but also summarises the activity and achievement of New Zealand's secondary school students over a number of prior years.
