2015 Ngā Whanaketanga Rumaki Māori Achievement Information

Where teaching and learning are guided and directed by Te Marautanga o Aotearoa, kura and schools use Ngā Whanaketanga Rumaki Māori to monitor and report students' progress and achievement.

Ngā Whanaketanga describes the kōrero (oral language), pānui (reading), tuhituhi (writing) and pāngarau (mathematics) skills and knowledge students need to learn in all learning areas across Te Marautanga o Aotearoa, at different points of their year 1 to 8 schooling.

The descriptions used in Ngā Whanaketanga Rumaki Māori to show students progress and achievement are:

  • Manawa Toa: Kei runga noa atu. The student is progressing and achieving higher than expected for particular learning areas.
  • Manawa Ora: Kua tutuki Ngā Whanaketanga Rumaki Māori. The student is progressing and achieving as expected for particular learning areas.
  • Manawa Āki: E whanake tonu ana kia tutuki Ngā Whanaketanga Rumaki Māori. The student is progressing but requires further support to assist their achievement for particular learning areas.
  • Manawa Taki: Me āta tautoko kia tutuki Ngā Whanaketanga Rumaki Māori. The student requires in-depth support to assist their achievement for particular learning areas

Key Findings

  • Approximately 206 kura and schools with year 1 to 8 students use Te Marautanga o Aotearoa. In 2015, the Ministry if Education were able to report on the data of 142 schools and kura using Ngā Whanaketanga Rumaki Māori.
  • Due to the low proportion of schools and kura with Ngā Whanaketanga Rumaki Māori information reported, care must be taken when interpreting the data.
  • Ngā Whanaketanga Rumaki Māori data is not reported by ethnic group as over 99% of the students identify as Māori.
