Single Item Assessments and Internal Assessments with the realigned Achievement Standards.

There has been much debate about the writing and moderation of Internal Assessments under the new realigned Achievement Standards in Maths this year. The Ministry and NZQA are meeting to discuss this and NZAMT want to have its collective say.

We need to be able to submit the views of Mathematics teachers, advisors and moderators.

This survey will help us collect your opinions and viewpoints. Please click on the link below and complete the short survey before this coming Friday.

Massey HOD Survey

E-mail Print PDF

"In 2010 a Massey research team conducted a national survey of prospective mathematics across eight Initial Teacher Education institutions. Some of the main findings of this survey can be found in the publication detailed in the attached information sheet. Following on from this survey we have designed a survey seeking mathematics HODs' appraisal of the cohort as they move into Year 1 of their teaching career.

Your email address has been provided by NZAMT who have endorsed this research. We are inviting all HoDs who have a Year I (PRT) mathematics teacher in their department to take 15 minutes to complete the on-line survey (mostly tick boxes). Data on this cohort will provide a national snapshot of HODs' satisfaction with teacher preparation programmes, views on recruitment issues, and expectations re the trajectory of professional development and learning needs of beginning teachers.

The short on-line questionnaire seeks your views on:

• recruitment of newly qualified teachers,

• preparedness on graduation (and thoughts about the role of ITE),

• their progress during the year,

• and expectations for retention.

GIFTED AND TALENTED resources:tiki

TKI -  Visit the resources for schools and teachers, students and parents. They are in the process of adding more resources to this website. One of the sections is the Teacher Resource Exchange and at the moment it has very little in it and nothing for mathematics. so this is a request to those of you who have developed activities for Gifted and Talented students in mathematics and statistics and are prepared to share to please look at either posting directly onto the web page

A learning area page for mathematics and statistics is being built , at the moment it hasn't been done, this is in the pipeline, but if you know of any good websites that you might use for gifted and talented with a maths or stats focus Contact Pip Arnold at parnold@cognition.co.nz so she can get them into this communal space for us all to share.

NZMaths also has a section for high achieving students
