The Progress and Consistency Tool (PaCT), which includes the Learning Progression Framework, enables those working with students to understand, track and respond to individual student progress and achievement against The New Zealand Curriculum. It enables teachers to focus on individual progress against the curriculum and provide students with early, responsive support, which is what PaCT enables by supporting consistent overall judgments of student progress and achievement.

The demo site is a reproduction of the live version of the PaCT, with mock student information that allows parents, schools who aren’t already using it, and those who work with schools, to navigate around the tool to see how it works.

When using the tool, users will see the benefits of the Learning Progression Frameworks that illustrate the significant steps students need to take as they develop their expertise in reading, writing and mathematics. The feedback from teachers using PaCT has been overwhelmingly positive.

The Learning Progression Framework provides examples of students’ work to illustrate the steps students need to take to develop their knowledge and skills.

PaCT was launched in 2015 and is currently being used by 526 schools. This number includes seven Communities of Learning | Kāhui Ako.

The PaCT demo site can be accessed on the PaCT website(external link)
