In 2024, NZQA will implement a compulsory Literacy and Numeracy examination. For two years, Newlands College has piloted this examination to better understand the expectations and to ensure our students are fully prepared for the task.
Each standard is worth 10 credits and success is critical as without them students are unable to gain NCEA qualifications.
In 2023, Year 10 students will have two opportunities to sit the Literacy assessments: the first in Term 2 and the second in Term 4.
Numeracy will be offered to Year 10 students in Term 4.
The grades are Achieved or Not Achieved.
The teachers facilitating the assessments are Amélie Kelder (Assistant Principal), Jo Dagger (Numeracy), and Jenny Brown (Literacy).
