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.

Exemplars in other books – Ngā tauaromahi kei pukapuka kē

The following exemplars in other books can also be viewed from a Contribution/Mana Tangata perspective.

Note: Almost all of the exemplars in Kei Tua o te Pae are affirmations of the children as learners, so no additions have been made for the domain to do with affirmation as individuals.
