Engaging with Excellence 

Below is a sample of one of the new writing tasks. In this task students are provided with visual prompts for writing. Formative work and these prompts will enable students  to write appropriate texts without reference to other sources. This will prevent copying from such sources.


Summative assessment resources for Levels 1, 2 and 3 English Language unit standards.

The English Language Resource Centre is currently producing resources that meet the requirements of the new standards. The first resources are now available and more will follow. There is also a resource for one EAP standards, us 22751.

How to pay

Schools and educational institutions that provide an order number will be invoiced.

Please note that, whilst every attempt has been made to ensure that the assessment resources enable students to meet the requirements of the standards, the resources have not been moderated by NZQA. The English Language Resource Centre is happy to make amendments to resources should this be required.
