USING DATA AND MEASURING PROGRESS: Craig Jones

This session will cover the achievement story and give a high level snapshot of the participation and achievement picture. It will include the importance of education data and how it points to factors that make a difference to student achievement, and the importance of measuring progress, not just achievement. The session will move to how we seek to transform education data - particularly iED, and will share information about developments such as the 'Know your Communities of Learning' feature that is being added to Ed Counts. 

2.00pm

PATHWAYS AND PROGRESS: Denise Arnerich

The knowledge that we believe our young people need is set out in the National Curriculum, standards, NCEA standards and Ministry support materials. Together, these set the direction for learning and influence what is taught in our schools. Through the design of rich local curriculum tasks, students experience opportunities for learning and a year's growth in a year. Progress tools allow us to monitor this learning and growth so that all students can become confident, connected, actively involved lifelong learners.
