78 Numeracy with Jess

NCEA Level(s)

Course aims / learning outcomes

  • This course is specifically for Year 12 and 13 students who currently have not yet achieved their 10 numeracy credits at NCEA Level 1. 


Course content

  • This course will be set up in a flipped learning environment, this means that you as a student can decide which internal achievement standards you need/want to work towards each term. You will also be able to work through the content at your own pace however there will be the expectation that you sit at least one assessment per term and that you will submit work each week for review by me. 


Assessment statement

All standards are able to be counted towards the 10 level 1 numeracy credits that students are required to obtain for NCEA qualification. There will also be the opportunity for reassessment on AS91026, AS91030 and AS91038. 

A total of 14 Achievement Standard credits are offered within this course. Students will target some, but not all of the credits. Decisions will be made, in conversation with the learning advisor, dependent on student goals, their level of independence and attitude to learning. There is an aim that students will completes one internal assessment each term.

  • All the assessments are sat as in class over multiple class periods. AS91026 and AS91030 are completely fully individually. AS91038 and AS90935 have the scope for a mix of group and individual work or completely individual. 


  • Assignments that take place over time will be produced in an online system such as Google Docs. Learning Advisors will monitor student work by accessing document history. A portion of work will need to be completed during class time under Learning Advisor supervision. 
  • Class tests will take place under supervised test conditions within class.
  • Students may be required to sign an authenticity statement, perform certain parts of assessment tasks under close supervision, or show through interview and the existence of notes and supporting material that the work submitted by the student is genuinely his/her own work.

Appeal Procedures

  • Students have the right to appeal the mark they have been awarded. If a student wishes to appeal a grade, they should initially talk to the subject learning advisor about the marking process immediately after the marked assessment task is shown to them. If still dissatisfied the student should make an appointment and discuss grades with the Principal’s Nominee who will check that the correct procedures have been followed as outlined in the school and subject policies taking into account any special circumstances.
