  1. Mrs Kriese and Class
    Thank you for the wonderful comment that you left on our class page in New Zealand. We shared it as a class this afternoon and we put it up on our data projector in the classroom and discussed.

    The short answer is that we don’t have exams with our students. We asess our students during the year and maka judgement call on the level that they are working on at the end, we don’t have formalised testing (although there has talk from the government about bringing it in). Other thing to remember is that we started our school year in February, so its been only going for eight weeks but we work until December.

    Thank you for the comments and the positive words on what we’ve been doing this year – we are excited because for our class (but not our teacher) its the first time that they’ve worked online and the first time that our work form our school has been view in different countries.

    Mr Webb and Room One, Auroa Primary School, Auroa, Taranaki, New Zealand.
