Use of Māori in Assessment

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

If you wish to submit items of assessment in Māori, you should give at least 14 days notice of your intention to the Student Centre 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.

If you have any questions or you need further information on the use of Māori in assessment, contact staff in the Student Centre on 0800 WAIKATO or [email protected]

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.
