In the late 1980s, there was a clear mandate for change in New Zealand assessment practice in the senior secondary school. However, the establishment of the National Qualification Framework introduced the principle of a single form of assessment for all areas of post-compulsory learning. Like Bursary, the unit standards model of assessment is unsatisfactory. However, there are alternative models of assessment which should be explored as educators mull over their responses to the Green Paper on the National Qualifications Framework.
