New Zealand Examining Bodies in the South Pacific

This chapter focuses on the roles of New Zealand examining bodies in the smaller states of the South Pacific. To permit understanding of the changing nature of relationships between these bodies and the South Pacific countries, the chapter includes some discussion of developments within New Zealand itself. The chapter may usefully be read in conjunction with Chapter 7, which discusses Samoa, and with Chapter 13, which deals with the South Pacific Board for Educational Assessment (SPBEA).
