Maori 1999
This report focuses solely on year 8 students. Starting in 1999, assessments of students learning in Mäori immersion programmes have been added to the national monitoring programme, at the year 8 level only. In 1999, half of these Mäori immersion students were learning in immersion schools (mainly Kura Kaupapa Mäori), while the other half were learning in immersion classes (located in mainstream schools, but having 80 to 100 percent of instruction conducted in Mäori). For this special sample, the assessment tasks and task materials were translated into Mäori and administered by teachers experienced in Mäori immersion settings. The results these students achieved are reported here, together with comparative figures for Mäori students in the main year 8 national monitoring sample (whose schooling was conducted predominantly in English).
