Measuring and reporting progress
The Ministry of Education is measuring and reporting on progress against Ka Hikitia – Managing for Success: The Māori Education Strategy 2008 – 2012 through the Measurable Gains Framework.
The Measurable Gains Framework will provide evidence of progress towards our objective of Māori enjoying and achieving education success as Māori.
This information will contribute to a better understanding of what works for and with Māori learners and will be critical to ongoing improvement. The information will inform the evaluation of Ka Hikitia – Managing for Success in 2013. It will contribute to the ongoing strategy development, policy and practice.
The Measurable Gains Framework tools
Tools have been developed to gather information. They provide common definitions and measurements of effectiveness in relation to Māori learners enjoying and achieving education success as Māori. These tools include a logic model and evaluative rubrics.
The logic model [Word; 83kb] is designed to show how a range of roles and activities contribute to Māori learner outcomes. The Ministry role is to provide leadership for the sector that will lead to improved education sector outcomes and, in turn, lead to improved Māori learner outcomes. Central to the model is a focus on identity, language and culture.
The logic is underpinned by the Ministry’s policy statement on the Treaty of Waitangi.
Evaluative rubrics are being developed for specific Ministry roles, for each area in the sector that will lead to improved Māori learner outcomes, and for each of three Māori learner outcomes. The rubrics are based on the evidence of what works for and with Māori.
While most of these rubrics have been developed as part of the Measurable Gains Framework, some have been developed within other programmes of work and imported for use as part of the Measurable Gains Framework.
The rubrics provide a shared understanding of what effective practice for Māori learners is, and allow us to interpret findings from multiple sources to report progress.
