NZAMT NCEA Submission


Dear NZAMT members,


Help NZAMT make a submission about NCEA and its future


NZAMT wishes to make a submission around NCEA and what we would like to see happen in the future.

We would like to make a submission, which represents the thoughts and wishes of mathematics’ teachers from around the country, so we have created a survey for you to complete.


The survey is a combination of 3 available through the Kōrero Mātauranga website, but without repetition in the questions being asked.

The survey is here:

We would ask that you complete the survey from a broad teaching perspective, but also with reference to Mathematics and Statistics teaching.


Can you please complete this survey by the 3rd August

Results will be compiled and then NZAMT will make a detailed submission before the due date of 16th September.


If you have any questions please contact NZAMT through the email address below.
