Learn more about online assessment15/05/2015
NZQA is piloting online assessments for some standards, including one science standard.
Pilots for three Year 11 science papers will be run in 2015, and schools have until 1 June to register interest. The papers include maths, French and one science paper: Level 1 science mechanics.
The New Zealand Association of Science Educators (NZASE) has been approached about professional learning development related to the proposed online assessments, which will be hosted through the Education Perfect platform.
Schools that are interested in learning more about these and would like to see Education Perfect in action are invited to attend one of the following PLD events. There are limited spaces available, so teachers are encouraged to register interest as soon as possible by completing this form.

Who should attend: Any teacher who is interested in online learning and assessment.
