Sociocultural approaches to assessment:
- include the children’s viewpoint when possible;
- take account of the powerful influence of assessments on children’s sense of themselves as learners;
- ensure that assessments of children’s learning within a Māori context are situated within a Māori pedagogical framework;
- recognise that assessment is one of the features of a learning community: it influences the quality of children’s engagement in learning.
