NZCER has been commissioned to collect, analyse, and report on public engagement data from multiple sources:

  • Quick Survey
  • NCEA and Big Opportunities Survey
  • Submissions
  • Workshops
  • Interviews
  • Focus groups.

Their analysis will be provided under the broad focuses of the NCEA review:

  • What are people’s experiences of NCEA?
  • What are people’s ideas for improvement?
  • What are people’s responses to the Big Opportunities and what alternatives do they suggest?

The data being analysed by NZCER comes from a wide range of stakeholder groups. 

  • Principal/tumuaki 
  • Teacher/kaiako
  • NCEA student
  • Parent/whanau
  • Student
  • NCEA graduate
  • Tertiary student
  • Tertiary educator
  • Employer
  • Iwi representative.

The submission process will capture open responses from a broad range of stakeholder groups, including institutions and representative organisations. In addition, more than 50 focus groups are being held around Aotearoa New Zealand to hear from people who may not submit surveys or submissions (for example, young people not in education or employment, teen parents, students in alternative education) or where a specific group discussion is sought (for example, employers, Pasifika fono).
