English assessment package


Thank you for taking the time to review the Phase 2 English assessment package:


  • Level 1 Achievement Standards
  • Internal Assessment Activities and teacher guidance materials
  • Assessment Schedules


Before reviewing this assessment package we encourage you to revisit the Learning Matrix, Assessment Matrix and Course Outlines from Phase 1 to refresh and provide some context for the Phase 2 assessment documents.


Please spend some time with these documents before providing your feedback. We suggest that you have the questionnaire open alongside the Phase 2 documents so that you can answer the questions as you read.


You will see that some changes have been made to the materials we released in Phase 1, in response to your feedback. In particular we have introduced an internally assessed Creating Meaning Standard: “Produce a selection of fluent and coherent texts which develop, sustain, and structure ideas,” at Level 3 on the Assessment Matrix. This signals our intent to rebalance the ‘creating and making meaning’ strands at that level.
