About Evaluation Associates
Evaluation Associates exists in order to raise achievement and reduce disparity for learners in this country. We do this in a range of ways – providing professional learning and development services, supporting principals and school leaders, developing publications and carrying out assessment and evaluation work. Our team is made up of a stunning group of education professionals. We hold ourselves to demonstrably high standards as making a difference for learners is what drives us all. This year we celebrated our 21st anniversary this year of working with New Zealand schools.
We have a team of 90, and offices in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch. We work in both English-medium and Māori-medium settings.
