Change coming for PaCT and TWA users

05 June 2018

If your school uses the Progress and Consistency Tool (PaCT) or Te Waharoa Ararau (TWA) you now have the option to have your settings aligned to the National Curriculum as opposed to National Standards and Ngā Whanaketanga Rumaki Māori.

Updated versions of the PaCT and TWA tools were released on 28 May. The changes will align judgements to all five levels of the curriculum for The New Zealand Curriculum and Te Marautanga o Aotearoa respectively.

This enhancement is part of how the Ministry is supporting teachers, kaiako, and education leaders with tools to help all students progress and achieve against the curriculum.
