Curriculum Stocktake: National School Sampling Study

Director: Clive McGee

Researchers: Alister Jones, Bronwen Cowie, Mary Hill, Thelma Miller and Ann Harlow

Project Dates: 2001 - 2003

The National School Sampling Study, a Ministry of Education initiative to investigate how teachers work with the curriculum, 2002-2003.

The first report in June 2001 outlined how teacher focus group discussions informed the development of national questionnaires.

In April 2002 the research team reported on the first round of questionnaires: general curriculum; mathematics; technology; and Mäori medium.

A subsequent report in April 2003 outlined the results of questionnaires to investigate teachers' experiences in teaching from the New Zealand national curriculum documents in English, languages (Japanese, Spanish, Chinese, Korean and Samoan), science and social studies.
