Burgeoning literacy and numeracy assessment tool (LNAT) data: The LNAT has allowed the tertiary sector to amass significant LN assessment data since 2010.
National and local LN trends and profiles: Ministry of Education reports (Lane, 2012, 2014) serve as points of orientation, providing the sector with national findings for target populations’ LN performance, while tertiary providers manage and analyse LN data at local level.
LNAT data-extraction file layout as a barrier: LNAT data-extraction file layout, we concluded, was a significant barrier in managing and tracking learners’ LN performance at tertiary provider level.
Main aim of this project: The main aim was to explore ways of managing and analyzing LNAT assessment data generated at the institute, developing processes to track, analyse and interpret learners’ LN performance, with specific reference to Māori, Pasifika, New Zealand Pākeha and other ethnicities.
