National Monitoring Study of Student Achievement (NMSSA)

NMSSA | Wānangatia te Putanga Tauira

NMSSA is an annual programme to assess and understand student achievement across the curriculum in years 4 and 8 in English-medium schools.

The study has built on and extended the design of the previous National Education Monitoring Project (NEMP), which was conducted between 1995 and 2010. NMSSA incorporates more advanced psychometrics for reporting student achievement and exploring factors associated with that achievement.
