A quick assessment - No pun intended

Here are the things you must collate and report on. Forget all other documentation, if you are a principal or teacher this is what Mary Chamberlain is being paid for.

Maths
After 1 year Level 1
After 2 years Level 1
After 3 years - early Level 2
End of year 4 Level 2
End of year 5 - early Level 3
End of year 6 Level 3

Reading
After 1 year Green
After 2 years Turquoise
After 3 years Gold
End of year 4 - at Level 2
End of year 5 - work towards Level 3
End of Year 6 - at Level 3

Writing
After 1 year Level 1
After 2 years Level 1
After 3 years - early Level 2
End of year 4 - at Level 2
End of year 5 - working towards Level 3
End of year 6 Level 3

Some quick observations - Writing is the same as Maths almost word for word, Reading too after Y3. All the support documentation they sent about maths, reading and writing mean nothing cause the MOE only want the data from above. You have to report to them exactly on the standard above and give them a number and proportion.

Nag 2A (C)(1) Says report on:
the numbers and proportions of students at, above, below, well below - maori, pacific, gender

I have quickly assessed my whole Y3 year level and looking at the data this will be how my report looks. We have a significant number at or above with a smaller number below. We have a small proportion of students not achieving and a large proportion at and a smaller proportion higher than at.

Reading - After one year Green?
Interesting that it could be interpreted as level 12, 13 or 14.... Wonderfully vague. I'll be sticking with 12!
