Introduction to Assist

NZCER Assist is our new online platform that replaces the legacy NZCER Marking site. We have combined the best parts of the Marking site with a range of new features to offer our customers an improved online experience.  For online subscriptions of assessments, completing SMS file uploads, adding teachers, and managing students, you will need to create an account within NZCER Assist.

(b) Admin creates user account

In some cases Organisation’s Administrator create teacher accounts on behalf of teachers. In this situation the administrator will be prompted to create a username and password for the teachers. Administrators have to share the username and password with teachers. Teachers will then use these details to log into NZCER Assist. Teachers can also reset their password if they like.
