Achievement Standards for Māori Performing Arts


Draft Achievement Standards and associated support materials for NCEA Level 1, Level 2 and Level 3 of Māori Performing Arts have been developed and we invite feedback on these via online questionnaires: 

Māori Performing Arts Level 1 – Questionnaire 

Māori Performing Arts Level 2 – Questionnaire 

Māori Performing Arts Level 3 – Questionnaire


The draft resources for feedback consist of:

  • The Subject Rationale
  • Learning Matrix
  • Assessment Matrix
  • Four Achievement Standards – 2 internal and 2 external and the Associated Conditions of Assessment for Levels 1-3.
  • Three Assessment Activities and supporting documents for each internal Achievement Standard.


Your feedback will be used by the Ministry and the MPA Subject Expert Group to further refine the subject materials. Together with NZQA, we intend to invite the schools and kura that are currently delivering Levels 1-3 of Māori Performing Arts to take part in a pilot throughout the 2021 school year. 


The feedback process closes at 4.00pm on 01 November 2020.
