“Bringing together our understandings to empower all learners”​

We’d like to invite you to contribute to a shared approach to changing education research and evaluation to empower all learners throughout Aotearoa

By having a shared vision and combining our understandings, our aim is to help education research and evaluation work better to improve outcomes for everyone, including ākonga, teachers, principals, researchers, families, whānau and communities.​

An Important Opportunity​

This is an exciting time to be involved. You’re at the start of a 10-year journey that will evolve over time to meet changing needs and incorporate new thinking and innovation. ​

Our Kaupapa​

Our kaupapa is underpinned by the principles of Te Tiriti o Waitangi, and facilitated by the Ministry of Education, Education Review Office and NZCER. We’re developing a national strategy for research and evaluation to support  better learning outcomes for all New Zealanders. ​

This strategy will:  ​

  • Identify priorities for how we address our big challenges​.

  • Strengthen our partnerships/relationships and insights.

  • Increase the usefulness of evidence in achieving better education outcomes for all. ​
