This report documents the findings of ERO’s 2013 evaluation of how well 40 secondary schools analysed and responded to their NCEA data.
From the report:
"ERO visited 40 secondary schools in 2013 and investigated how well they analysed and responded to their NCEA data. ERO looked for evidence that schools had identified student achievement issues and developed initiatives that improved learning. Although a range of achievement data was considered, the focus for this work was schools’ investigation of NCEA Level 2......"
New Zealand Mathematical Olympiad Student Association (NZMOSA), a student initiative started at the beginning of this year with the aim of fostering passion and interest for mathematical thinking, processes and creativity, which are represented in a branch of high school mathematics known as the Mathematical Olympiad.
Starting on July 29, 2014, we would like to launch a nationwide mathematical competition, named the New Zealand Mathematical Olympiad (NZMO). We plan this to be as follows:
90 minutes in duration
Supervised under exam conditions
Three divisions (Junior for Years 7 and 8, Intermediate for Years 9 to 11, and Senior for Years 12 and 13), each with its own question paper
6 questions for each question paper, with a total 60 marks (clear working will be expected in student answers)
Can your students win $6000 in New Zealand's Next Top Engineering Scientist?
This fun and challenging day long competition is for teams of three to four senior students, who have interests in mathematics and science. The 2014 competition will run near the start of term 3, on Saturday the 2nd of August. The problem is revealed at 9am in the morning and students work in their teams to provide a solution by 6pm of that day. First prize is $6,000 plus there are two runner-up prizes of $2,000. For more information and to register your team(s) see the Department of Engineering Science website at the University of Auckland: www.des.auckland.ac.nz/competition Registrations close Friday 25th of July.
