Abstract

A two-stage sampling design was used to select nationally- representative samples of students at Year 4 and at Year 8. The first stage involved sampling schools, and the second stage involved sampling students within schools.
A stratified random sampling approach was taken with the intention of selecting 100 schools at Year 4 and 100 schools at Year 8. A maximum of 27 students were randomly selected from each school to form a national sample of approximately 2,200 students at Year 4 and 2,200 students at Year 8. To ensure that the 2015 student sample was nationally representative, the Ministry of Education's July 2014 school returns for Year 3 and Year 7 were used to inform the selection of Year 4 and Year 8 schools for the 2015 assessment programme.
