Levels of the New Zealand Curriculum
The New Zealand Curriculum for each subject is divided into 8 levels of achievement students Year 1 to 13.  The following diagram indicates approximate parallels between levels of achievement and year level.  Although it is not expected that all students of the same age will be achieving at the same level at the same time, most students in Years 9 and 10 are expected to be working towards Level 5 of the curriculum.  The curriculum levels assist teachers to identify a student’s progressive development, and therefore to provide the most appropriate programmes.
