Supporting NCEA Online 2021

This year we’re pleased to partner again with NZQA to offer schools free Network Assurance Checks. These assessments make sure a school’s network is fit for purpose to ensure ākonga have the best online exam experience possible.

What do Network Assurance Checks assess?

Network Assurance Checks assess the performance of the school’s network equipment, the general internet speed, and identify any ‘dead spots’ where there is no connectivity. We also review the network’s security and what contingency systems are in place to minimise disruption during the exam period.

Findings Reports

Following the Network Assurance Checks, we provide schools with a Findings Report, outlining improvements that can be made ahead of exams to improve the security and efficiency of their networks, so they can focus on delivering a positive online exam experience for ākonga.

Exam time support

During the exam period (08 November – 02 December), N4L will monitor network performance, offering real-time support for every school via its Helpdesk.
