The Use of Māori in Assessments

The University recognises and supports students who wish to use Māori in written work for assessment and will try to have suitable staff available to ensure that any work submitted in Māori is assessed by staff competent in both the examined subject and in Māori.

There are occasions when, due to the nature of the skills being tested, work submitted for assessment may be required to be in a particular language. In such cases that requirement shall be made explicit in writing, either in the relevant subject entry or prescription in the University of Waikato Calendar, or in the paper outline distributed to candidates at the beginning of a paper.

If students wish to submit items of assessment in Māori, they need to give at least 14 days notice of their intention to the Assessment and Graduation Office so that proper arrangements may be made.

Due to the time it takes for translation and verification, it is likely there will be some delay in the work being returned to the examiner and, therefore, being returned to you.

For further information on the use of Māori in assessment, refer to the Policy on the Use of Māori for Assessment in the University of Waikato Calendar.
