Assessment standards may be incorporated into programmes of study and used to provide assessment evidence towards the achievement of qualification outcomes.

To provide guidance and/or assistance for programme developers and organisations, assessment standards have been reviewed and aligned to the graduate profile outcomes of Mātauranga Māori qualifications in the following areas:

There are other standards in the same and other domains of Field Māori that may be relevant as well.

If your organisation has consent to assess against Field Māori unit standards (and other assessment standards), you can incorporate the standards, as appropriate, in your programmes of study. To find out which assessment standards your organisation has consent to assess, you can look under the NZQA website’s consent to assess scope for Providers.

Other resources

A range of assessment support materials is also available to help teaching staff assess learners against unit standards listed on the Field Māori section of the Directory of Assessment Standards.
