Curriculum Progress Tools

The Curriculum Progress Tools include the Learning Progression Frameworks (LPFs) and the Progress and Consistency Tool (PaCT).   

The Learning Progression Frameworks give a big-picture view of progress in reading, writing, and mathematics through the New Zealand Curriculum. This supports teachers to understand the breadth and complexity of students' knowledge, skills, and attitudes. 

The PaCT Tool is designed to help teachers make dependable judgments about students' achievement that can be used to track progress in reading, writing, and mathematics. Teachers locate students on the Learning Progression Frameworks as they make judgments in PaCT. PaCT provides dependable information that can be used by teachers, school leaders, Boards of Trustees, and whānau.

Oral language

Learning through Talk cover.
LTT book cover.

Oral language is one of the foundations of early literacy. Having skills in listening, talking, viewing, drawing and critiquing are all important precursors to developing skills in reading and writing.  Oral language is needed to negotiate social situations, create meaning of the world around them, and access the curriculum.

Literacy and teaching as inquiry

The Literacy Learning Progressions

The Literacy Learning Progressions describes the specific literacy knowledge, skills, and attitudes that students draw on in order to meet the reading and writing demands of the curriculum. Teachers need to ensure that their students develop the literacy expertise that will enable them to engage with the curriculum at increasing levels of complexity and with increasing independence.
