NEW ENROLMENT-BASED MEASURE OF NCEA ATTAINMENT

NZQA and the Ministry of Education have implemented a change to the way NCEA and University Entrance attainment is reported.

The new enrolment-based measure of NCEA attainment will replace NZQA’s roll – based and participation-based measures. It provides a more precise picture of attainment. It counts all domestic students in years 11 to 13 aged less than 19 on 1 January, rather than taking a snapshot of students as at 1 July. It also counts up to three ethnicities students identify with, rather than limiting this to just one.

As a result, NZQA advises that most schools will see a change in their attainment rates. It is a statistical adjustment that doesn’t reflect school performance, teaching practice or an individual student’s results. Also, whilst NCEA and University Entrance attainment rates do change for most schools, the amount of improvement in student attainment over time is similar and positive using the enrolment-based measure.

NZQA has consulted with schools on the way attainment is reported at a school level. The enrolment-based measure will be used for reporting NCEA and University Entrance attainment statistics from January 2019.

More information can be found on the NZQA website:    https://www.nzqa.govt.nz/studying-in-new-zealand/secondary-school-and-ncea/find-information-about-a-school/secondary-school-statistics/

SUMMER READING CHALLENGE

Kia ora,

As you will be aware it is really important to encourage continued reading over the summer break.

Kaikohe Library invites you to join us in promoting this year’s Summer Reading Challenge – a Kaikohe Library reading initiative.

Children are encouraged to sign up, collect a log book, choose and read (at least) six books over the three summer months –  receiving rewards and support from the library along the way. All who complete the challenge go in to win a $50 Warehouse voucher.

Our teen readers will each go in to win a $50 Warehouse voucher for every book review they submit.

Staff will be on hand with book lists and Bingo sheets to encourage and inspire book choices.

The aim is to make the most of this interactive programme to build literacy and inspire a love of reading in our tamariki.

If you would like a log book please see your school office.

Keep an eye out for our e-news and library survey. We would really appreciate your input and suggestions for our up and coming library re-vamp!
