Our focus is on developing professionals to lead high quality evaluations to advance Māori wellbeing

As ERO’s indigenous evaluation and culturally responsive professional practice group, we:

We review and refine evaluation methodologies for Māori immersion education

We review and refine evaluation methodologies for Māori immersion education that focus on:

  • Te ao Māori Principles that influence and underpin evaluation
  • Indigenous evaluation that is depicts a Māori way of knowing and being
  • Theory of transformation which includes critical reflection, dialogue, improvement, influence and enrichment.
  • Developmental evaluation that supports innovative and adaptive development in complex, dynamic Māori immersion environments.
