Review of Achievement Standards (RAS) – Provisional NCEA Level 1 Subject List

The Government has now confirmed the final NCEA change package which will strengthen our national qualification; address over-assessment and fragmented learning; promote culturally responsive teaching and learning; and improve accessibility, the support available to teachers, and the information available to students and whānau.

They are asking all New Zealanders for feedback on a provisional subject list which will support Level 1 to become a broader, foundational qualification that allows students to keep their pathway options open, while Levels 2 and 3 promote opportunities for greater specialisation.

Have your say on the provisional subject list by 20 April 2020 https://consultation.education.govt.nz/…/ras-provisional-su…

If you have any questions about this work, please don’t hesitate to get in touch via ras.review@education.govt.nz
