Use the diagram below to navigate to each phase of the teacher inquiry cycle.
“The primary purpose of assessment is to improve students’ learning and teacher’s teaching as both student and teacher respond to the information that it provides. With this in mind, schools need to consider how they will gather, analyse, and use assessment information so that it is effective in meeting this purpose.”
New Zealand Curriculum (p.39)
A key function of literacy leadership is leading pedagogical change through the teaching as an inquiry tool. This is clearly explained in Leading from the middle: educational leadership for middle and senior leaders

Materials developed by Learning Media
The video clips and associated materials referenced in Phases 2 and 3 were developed as part of a set to tools within the Literacy Professional Development Programme 2004-10 designed and delivered nationally by Learning Media Ltd. The observation tools, in particular, were a part of the nested research programme carried out with The University of Auckland and contributed to positive shifts in teacher and leader capability around practice analysis. The project worked with over 300 schools in that time and was shown to lift students' achievement in literacy with effect sizes for each of the three cohorts as .79, .62, and .88, respectively. The gain for the lowest 20 percent of students in each of the three cohorts was five to six times the expected gain and, in reading, around two to three times the expected gain.
