Kei Tua o te Pae

Kei Tua o te Pae/Assessment for Learning: Early Childhood Exemplars is a best-practice guide that will help teachers continue to improve the quality of their teaching.

The exemplars are a series of books that will help teachers to understand and strengthen children's learning. It also shows how children, parents and whānau can contribute to this assessment and ongoing learning.

We are making improvements to our download-to-print functionality. So if you want a printed copy there are PDF versions available at the bottom of the main cover page.

Reflective questions – He pātai hei whakaaro iho

  • Which assessments from our setting make ICT learning visible to teachers, children, families, and whānau?
  • What opportunities do we have for involving ICT expertise from the wider community in the documentation of our children’s learning? Do we access this expertise?
  • In what way are our assessments grounded in a clear understanding of the purposes, practices, and social context of our early childhood setting and its community? In what way, therefore, can ICT assessments indicate that we are on the pathway towards bicultural practice?
  • How do teachers include in their assessments the ICT practices children are experiencing outside the centre?
  • Are there opportunities for children to use ICT to contribute to documenting their own learning?
