1. WELCOME TO LEVEL 1 UNIT STANDARD LITERACY The LY1500 modules you are enrolled in give you the opportunity to gather samples from activities you have completed or taken part in during the course of your everyday life. From these samples, three will be selected for assessment against one or more of the Level 1 Literacy Unit Standards. If you are a secondary-aged student, you can only complete these standards as part of EN1000, the Te Kura NCEA Level 1 English course. If you are enrolled as an Adult or Young Adult student, you can choose to complete NCEA Level 1 Literacy through the EN1000 course or just complete the Level 1 Literacy Unit Standards through Te Kura’s course, LY1500. Please note that some tasks can be assessed against more than one Literacy Unit Standard, so make sure you get observations sheets filled in. See the examples in this guide.

To gain Level 1 Literacy, you must achieve either: • 10 Literacy credits through these three Literacy Unit Standards or • 10 Literacy credits through any of the achievement standards that are Literacy-tagged at www.nzqa.govt.nz/qualifications-standards/qualifications/ncea/subjects/literacy-and numeracy/level-1-requirements. You cannot gain Literacy through combining the Literacy unit standards with achievement standards.

Activities suitable for assessment can occur while you are engaged in your learning programme, at your workplace, at home with family or when enjoying interests, sports or hobbies. Often tasks can be used for assessment against more than one standard.

OBSERVATION SHEETS Observation sheets are included in each of the LY booklets, LY1510 (Reading), LY1520 (Writing) and LY1530 (Speaking and Listening). It is important to have your observation sheets ready so a responsible adult can write down the things you are doing that might show the skills we are looking for. To give yourself the best opportunity to pass on the first assessment, make sure you send in your observation sheets when you return your samples and cover sheets.

EVIDENCE Consistent participation in your Te Kura courses and regular return of work will give you the best opportunity to quickly gather the samples which we call evidence. Your evidence can come from any of your study courses. This includes work you may be doing with another learning institution at the same time as you are studying with Te Kura. You can also use work from any of your subjects which you may have had assessed against a standard that subject offers – whether you passed the standard or not. If you have work you completed at your previous school or in earlier years as a student with Te Kura, this may also be considered. As long as your teacher knows why you did the work or task (the purpose) and who was going to read or view what you have done (the audience) then any work you have completed can be considered. Your teacher has to be sure that you have been using the skill to be assessed consistently over a period of time. That is, over a period of at least one month. There is no final assessment task for each standard. Your Te Kura teacher is the person who completes the assessment. Your teacher can assess your tasks or observed activities as soon as you have work that meets all the requirements. The sooner you send your work in, the sooner you will be ready for assessment. You are expected to keep an eye out for any samples of work. Your teacher can help you with this but you are the one who knows the activities that are happening in your world. If you think there is an opportunity to gather the evidence required, take it. Let your teacher know then decide if the evidence can be used or not.

YOUR FIRST PIECE OF EVIDENCE? The first task in each booklet is a diagnostic tool to help your teacher decide the resources to send, to support you as you learn. Send this in, with the first detachable cover sheet LY1510A, LY1520A or LY1530A, as soon as you have finished it. If this work is up to the standard, it may be used as one of your three samples so make sure you do your best, complete it on your own and sign the back of the cover sheet.

PG 3


COVER SHEETS Your booklet has a cover sheet on the back. 5 extra cover sheets are found at the back of your booklet. These are to be used to send in samples when you are not returning the booklet. You must sign and date each cover sheet you return. If you miss this step, your work will be delayed. Your teacher must be sure that the work you send in is your own as it may be used in your final assessment. All students are encouraged to submit as much as possible of their work on line via the OTLE Dropbox. When work requires authentication, students will follow the instructions provided in OTLE.

TE KURA CODES LY is the code for Literacy. 1500 indicates that this course is at NCEA Level 1. LY1510, LY1520 and LY1530 refers to the standard you are completing. LY1510 Read texts with understanding. LY1520 Write to communicate for a purpose and audience. LY1530 Actively participate in spoken interactions. Lots of resources that have different codes, such as ENG or EN have been included, to support your learning.

If you are unsure about anything you have read here or have further questions, call or email your Te Kura teacher.

3. ASSESSMENT INFORMATION STANDARDS For more information about National Certificates of Educational Achievement and assessment please refer either to our Student Guide to National Certificates or the Te Kura (www.tekura. school.nz) and NZQA websites (www.nzqa.govt.nz).

INTERNAL ASSESSMENT This means the teachers at Te Kura assess your work within the school. You do not have to sit an external examination for these standards. A Te Kura teacher will be the assessor of your work. Your supervisor and anyone who fills in the observation sheet for you, outside Te Kura, is called an observer. The observer must be a responsible person (preferably an adult) who can: • fill in the observation sheet fully for you and • understands what to do. Some of the observations will be happening in situations in which people have a short time to complete the observation sheet. Your goal is to achieve the standard so you want someone who is confident to do the best job for you. Assessment for these unit standards is very different from the unit and achievement standards you may already be familiar with.

GATHERING EVIDENCE • You will collect samples from school work and situations in your everyday life. Evidence can be collected from: • school • workplace • community

both istockphoto

or from involvement with: • family • sports • leisure (hobbies, interests).

• Your samples must be collected over a period of time so your Te Kura teacher can verify that you have shown you can work consistently at the level required. This means you can’t sit down and complete all the samples within a week that you’ve set aside especially for completing this standard.

• Any responsible person can be the observer of your work and verify it is your own.

istockphoto

You may have a part time job in the supermarket and your manager may be willing to observe you helping a customer who is learning to use the self-checkout system.

PG 8

LY 1500CA

• You can be part of a team of people working to help you complete your unit standard and you can manage your samples of work to send into your Te Kura teacher. This is a great place to start showing the skills you’ve already developed. You can also practise the skills you’ll need to win the job you want in the future and to manage other areas of your life.

istockphoto

This way, you get to take responsibility – alongside your supervisor – for picking your best work. When you’re in a job or dealing with everyday skills – like dealing with the bank because you want your first home loan – you’ll need to be taking control and managing yourself.

• The best way to do this is by organising a folder to keep your collected samples (evidence) in until it is ready to be forwarded to your Te Kura teacher. • Samples of work for each of the unit standards in LY1500 can be gathered from any of your subjects if the sample meets the requirements for one of these 3 unit standards.

It would be a good idea to place dividers in your folder for LY1510, LY1520 and LY1530. This will keep your work for each standard separate.

© TE AHO O TE KURA POUNAMU

If you are able to complete your work electronically (on a computer) you would be wise to have 3 folders on your desktop for LY1510, LY1520 and LY1530 until you are ready to either send them by email or print them off to post to your Te Kura teacher.

LY 1500CA

PG 9


• You can keep working on a task you are going to send in to your Te Kura teacher until you and your supervisor are happy that you will meet the requirements. • You can make further changes to a task that your teacher has checked before the assessment takes place. • You must meet the requirements that are set out for each standard. One requirement, for example, in US 26624 Read texts with understanding, is that you show you can find information in a text that relates to the goal you want to achieve (the purpose) in reading that text. For instance, if you are reading a gym fitness circuit guide you will need to find the instructions for safely completing the new exercises you will be learning so you don’t injure yourself. The notes you make, diagrams you draw or discussions you have with your gym instructor are all examples of the way in which you can gather your evidence from this activity. istockphoto

There is information on the observation sheets that will help your observer understand what they have to do.

• Your Te Kura teacher makes the final decision whether or not you pass the standard. The three best samples are taken from all of the work selected by you and your supervisor for assessment. Your teacher will also be able to see if any of the samples can also be used in assessing either of the other two standards. • You must send in work which has been verified as your own. This means your observer must assure us that you were not helped to complete the task.

You can ask questions about the work along the way; you just can’t have someone help you do it.

PG 10

LY 1500CA

© TE AHO O TE KURA POUNAMU


RESUBMISSIONS If you have not reached the standard once your best three samples have been assessed, you have the opportunity for resubmission. This means you have the chance to discover and correct errors you have made or requirements you have not met. A resubmission allows you another chance to pass the standard. All resubmissions are to be submitted with a cover sheet your teacher will send to you.

APPEALS You have the right to question an assessment result. If you are not satisfied, you may appeal. Refer to the Te Kura Student Guide to National Certificates for more information. You can also appeal any other decisions, procedures or policies about assessments. Contact you Te Kura teacher or learning advisor if you wish to appeal. More information and a form that students can use to appeal are both available on the Te Kura website in the student toolkit area. Go to www.tekura.school.nz and then go to student toolkit.

4. TRACKING YOUR EVIDENCE AS YOU GATHER IT Planning grid have been included to assist you with tracking your evidence in the variety of situations in which it might occur. A chart has also been included so you can record the additional materials and resources you use and online resources such as websites.

A PLANNING CHART FOR GATHERING EVIDENCE You can use these two grids to ‘map’ where your evidence comes from. Keep this chart in your folder for opportunities that arise from your school work in other subject areas, from parttime work, work placement, Authentic Learning opportunities, community, sporting, hobby, cultural or family involvement. Remember to also include any Gateway or Star courses you have attended.

5. GETTING STARTED INFORMATION This section is for Adults or Young Adults enrolled in the LY1500 course. The information may also be useful to you if you are completing the Unit Standard Literacy modules in the EN1000 or EN1600 course and are new to learning with Te Kura.

ORGANISING YOUR STUDY Plan a regular time to do your study. It is important to have a plan or a timetable and to stick to it.

PLAN FOR ALL THREE STANDARDS PRESENT EVIDENCE FOR ALL THREE STANDARDS PASS UNIT STANDARD LITERACY Some people learn best when they have short, frequent learning sessions. Others do better with fewer, longer sessions. Contact your Te Kura teacher so you can be supported with the best plan for ‘study action’ that suits your needs. Please refer to our Student Guide to Years 11–13 and our website www.tekura.school.nz for more information to help you study successfully.

TIME COMMITMENT This will vary according to your method of studying and whether you are in a classroom at school or working at home. It will also depend on how much skills development you need to do to prepare for successful completion of samples for assessment. The more time and effort you put into completing tasks and gathering evidence, the quicker you will be ready for assessment of your three best work samples. You must maintain a steady, consistent commitment as: • your work samples must be gathered over time • regular return of work is required for you to stay in the course and on the Te Kura roll.

PACE OF LEARNING Some may enrol in this course at the beginning of the year. From the time you enter the course, you need to be constantly looking for evidence opportunities in: • other subject areas • aspects of your everyday life. Your pace of learning will be similar to that of a student in school. As a guide, expect to do at least 5 hours of work per week. If you have enrolled in LY1500 later in the school year, you can still complete the course by devoting more time and effort to it. You can also gather work you have already done in other subjects for consideration in your final assessment. Your teacher will know the best way to get these samples, for your situation.

RESOURCES YOU WILL NEED TO START The first booklet you are likely to be sent is LY1510 Reading Texts with understanding. Your teacher will send out the other booklets, when you are ready for them. Please let your teacher if you would like to start with the writing or speaking/listening booklets, or if you are happy to work on all 3 at once. Contact your teacher if you are at all unsure or do not receive your booklet.

RETURN OF WORK Your first piece of evidence should be returned to your teacher within the first two weeks of starting your course. You are strongly encouraged to submit your work via the OTLE dropboxes. Talk to you teacher if you have any questions about this option. Remember, you don’t have to have your own computer to access OTLE. You just have to have an OTLE password. The best way to progress with your study is to maintain regular contact with your teacher. This is easiest to do electronically through OTLE and other electronic means, even if you are receiving print materials.

PG 16

QUERIES ABOUT YOUR WORK When you contact your teacher, it is important to have ready: • your ID number • your booklet code • the activity you have a question about.

TO STAY ON TRACK: • keep regularly checking you’re working towards the requirements of each standard • work with your supervisor on the tasks you have been set and keep gathering evidence • send in your workbook, along with any evidence, as soon as it is complete. If in doubt over anything ALWAYS check with your Te Kura teacher.

EVIDENCE EXAMPLE

You’re the leader of your local kapa haka group. You have a plan for their movement on and off stage at the next performance. You have to write clear instructions for the group’s next practice and answer any questions. You then have to read each instruction aloud before leading them through the plan, step by step. Can you see how you might use this situation to gather evidence for all three standards? Ask a responsible person watching and listening (e.g. parent, the guitarist) to fill in your observation sheets.

APPENDIX 2 FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (FOR SUPERVISORS)

Why does the Te Kura teacher select the 3 pieces that will be assessed? Te Kura offers the course. The teacher of the course is the assessor. The assessor selects the final 3 pieces of evidence. Do we have to get evidence from all the parts of life the student is involved in? No, the evidence may just come from one area of the student’s life or a range of areas. This can be school, work, home, sports, hobbies, clubs. The situations listed in the standards are examples of the range of everyday life situations the student may be involved in. The student can gather evidence from any of these. You cannot gather evidence from tests that are specifically designed to assess for these standards. Why does evidence have to be gathered over time? The assessor has to be satisfied that the student has demonstrated competency in the skills assessed. One assessment does not allow the assessor to see this is a consistent skill the student has gained. Is it ok if the student gets a mate to sign the observation sheet? We recommend that the observer is a responsible person who is both confident and able to fill out the sheet, fully. Remind your student that they want to give themselves the best chance to submit a piece of evidence that will help them pass the standard. This is their goal. The observation sheet is part of their evidence. What if the student leaves school and hasn’t finished the course or gained all their standards? The student has the opportunity, at any time, to enrol in another institution to complete the standards they have not yet gained. They will not achieve Literacy at NCEA Level 1 until all 3 standards are complete. The student can take their folder of evidence with them. It may have evidence which is still valid. They will have to check validity on enrolment. Why have you started the course with US 26624 and not 26622? Most students have ready access to reading materials around them in their everyday life so this is an easy standard to start with. Students can start with texts they know and like or texts that are relevant to everyday life, such as the Road Code for learner drivers. What happens if we lose any evidence? Contact your Te Kura teacher straight away. They will discuss with you the next steps from here.
