Junior Assessment Framework
The Junior Assessment Framework (JAF) is used to assess all students in Years 9 & 10.  It is designed to measure and develop students’ thinking skills.  It is based on SOLO taxonomy and has strong links to the NZ Curriculum levels.  See the documents linked below for more information – one explains the JAF in a basic way and the other is the framework itself, which shows how the different levels of thinking are graded.
