From 13 February, CensusAtSchool New Zealand – TataurangaKiTeKura Aotearoa launches its 11th biennial bilingual survey to chart students’ views of their own lives.
CensusAtSchool is a non-profit, online educational project that aims to bring statistics to life in both English and Māori-medium classrooms. Supervised by teachers, students from Years 3-13 anonymously answer 30 questions and later explore the results in class. The statistical project runs every two years, and in 2021, more than 35,000 students took part, representing approximately 600 schools and 1,200 teachers.
Teacher Guides are already available and teaching resources include workshops, presentations, classroom activities, research papers, interactive data analysis tools, real student data sets, and statistics website links.
