New Zealand Council for Educational Research (NZCER)

Website: http://www.nzcer.org.nz/

NZCER is Aotearoa New Zealand’s independent, statutory education research and development organisation established in 1934. The NZCER Act 1972 requires the organisation to carry out and disseminate education research and provide information and advice.  We conduct research and evaluation work with a range of public and private sector clients. We also produce research-based products such as tests, journals, books and services such as online testing, surveys, test marking and analysis.

Our revenue comes from a  government grant, from contestable research contracts and from sales of our products and services. The government grant, which amounts to about 15 percent of our total income, enables us to build a coherent, future-focused research programme that complements and enhances our contract work. We bid for work that aligns with our areas of expertise and that we believe will inform and support learning and the work of teachers.
