Dear NZCLTA Member,
Over the past year, in response to teacher feedback, Education Perfect has been investing in and updating the assessment component of their learning platform. This flexible assessment tool will be made freely available for all New Zealand teachers to use with their classes during Term 1 of 2018.
Access automatically marked tests which analyse and target students' strengths and weaknesses, and from this, recommend lessons that aim to fill those gaps.
A range of types of tests can be used and/or generated using the platform, including:
· Prebuilt curriculum aligned tests
· Dynamic tests that utilise a bank of pre-written questions
· Fully customisable tests that can be created by yo
If you know of any friends/colleagues that may find this useful, please feel free to pass on this email on to them.
Wishing you a fantastic start to the year!

Mock Exam Paper 2017
Dear Chinese language teachers:
With the support from ILEP Chinese, the New Zealand Chinese Language Teachers Association, NZCLTA, has organized Chinese language teachers nationwide to write listening and reading mock exam papers for Chinese Level One, Level Two and Level Three in 2015 and 2016. In 2017, the Auckland branch is happy to continue the job by inviting a group of experienced NCEA teachers to write new mock exam papers under supervision of experts nationwide in New Zealand.
All the Reading exam papers include Resource Booklet, exam Question Papers and Schedule while all the Listening exam papers include a CD, CD Transcript, exam Question Papers and Schedule. The schedules could be adjusted according to the answer information from students.
The exam papers will be available in PDF via email or hard copy via courier at the beginning of Term Three in 2017
These exam papers include Level 1, 2 and 3, 6 standards in total. The price of each standard is $30 for NZCLTA member and $50 for non-member. To value the hard work of all people involved and to respect those teachers who have paid for the exam papers, a kind reminder here to all those teachers who are to purchase the exam papers, will you please not share the exam papers with others?
For any teachers who need the mock exam papers before Term three, you may also order the mock exams created in 2015 and 2016 and the price is the same as 2017.
Last but not the least, we encourage teachers to join NZCLTA and the annual fee is $30 per teacher. As a member you will enjoy free workshops and discounted price to purchase the mock exam papers. It is really worthy of it!
