"The school’s assessment schedule has clear expectations for the collection of data, using a range of appropriate assessment tools. There is a collaborative approach to making overall teacher judgements (OTJs) about children’s achievement in relation to National Standards in reading, writing and mathematics. Teachers work collegially to establish a shared understanding of the National Standards, use progressions and develop matrix indicators. Teachers share evidence of achievement in National Standards and this forms the basis for all professional discussions and informs collective OTJs."Ngakuru School Ero Report 2017
