The rise of innovative learning environments, with multiple teachers and larger cohorts of students, can de-privatise practice as teachers have the opportunity to observe each other teaching.

This article traces the reframing of the relationship between knowledge, skills and competencies in New Zealand education policy from the 1990s onwards. It argues that this reframing is the result of New Zealand's recontextualisation of global policy ideas about the kind of education thought to be needed in the twenty-first century, and in…

Marshall, Neil; Shaw, Kirsten; Hunter, Jodie; Jones, Ian – New Zealand Journal of Educational Studies, 2020
There is growing interest in using comparative judgement to assess student work as an alternative to traditional marking. Comparative judgement requires no rubrics and is instead grounded in experts making pairwise judgements about the relative 'quality' of students' work according to a high level criterion. The resulting decision data are fitted…
