Using evidence

Using evidence, such as the Ministry of Education's Best Evidence Synthesis (BES) programme, can be a catalyst for systemic improvement and sustainable development in education. The social sciences best evidence synthesis has a focus on quality teaching and learning for diverse learners in the social sciences.

    It seeks to understand why, for whom and in what circumstances particular teaching approaches are effective.

  • Ka Hikitia - Accelerating Success 2013 -2017

    Ka Hikitia – Accelerating Success 2013–2017 is our strategy to rapidly change how the education system performs so that all Māori students gain the skills, qualifications and knowledge they need to enjoy and achieve education success as Māori.

    Ka Hikitia – Accelerating Success 2013–2017 is an updated strategy, not a brand new one. Its predecessor, Ka Hikitia – Managing for Success 2008–2012, set the direction for improving how the education system performs for Māori students.

    Social sciences teachers can make an important contribution to improving Māori student outcomes by increasing their knowledge of what works for and with Māori, based on the evidence.

  • International Civic and Citizenship Education Study (ICCS)

    ICCS is an educational study that aims to investigate the ways in which young people are prepared to undertake their roles as citizens in the 21st century. New Zealand is one of over 30 countries taking part. A major advantage of international studies of student achievement is that results can be compared across all participating countries.
