This position paper produced by the Ministry of Education and released in 2011 outlines its vision for assessment. This is the first formal statement of position on assessment since the National Assessment Strategy in 1999. It describes what the assessment landscape should look like if assessment is to be used effectively to promote system-wide improvement within, and across, all layers of the schooling system. The paper, supported by national and international research, places assessment firmly at the heart of effective teaching and learning.
