Numeracy represents foundational learning at Level 4/5 of the curriculum ie confident at level 4 and ready for level 5 across all strands

About NCEA Numeracy 

From 2023, to gain an NCEA qualification, ākonga must pass the Numeracy standard US32406: Use mathematics and statistics to meet the numeracy demands of a range of situations or the Pāngarau standard US32412, Te whakamahi pāngarau me te tauanga hei whakatutuki i ngā hiahia pāngarau o ngā pūāhua whai take.

The Numeracy standard requires ākonga to master the mathematics and statistics content ideas at Level 4 of the New Zealand Curriculum AND interweave these content ideas with mathematical and statistical process ideas.

The CAA (Common Assessment Activity) from the 2021 pilot

The CAA  with some questions and images removed [due to copyright] and associated documents may be found under the assessment TAB 

We held an online discussion in November 2021 with some of the pilot schools sharing their journey to that point.

  • A few pilot schools shared their experience with the 2021 pilot last November. You can see the notes in the Numeracy discussion folder at this link. Also at that link is questions and answers about Numeracy from NZAMT events. This was a point in time and not official information however we found the discussion valuable
