What we do
NMSSA is a large-scale assessment that monitors trends in student achievement. We visit 200 schools and work with more than 5,000 students each year to build a reliable picture of achievement across the country. The information we provide is used by government, schools and teachers to improve education.
Our work is important for Aotearoa because we track students' progress in the New Zealand Curriculum. Our reports complement results from international studies of achievement.
