The Learning Progression Frameworks
Introduction / Description
The Learning Progression Frameworks (LPF) app will help you use the learning progressions frameworks to support teaching and learning.
It allows you to browse the frameworks and illustrations anywhere, anytime and make notes to help you in your work.
The LPF app is available for Apple and Android devices.
You can also access the Learning Progressions Framework online at https://lpf.education.govt.nz (external link) .
Support for teaching and learning
The frameworks illustrate the significant steps that learners take as they develop their expertise in reading, writing, and mathematics from years 1 to 8.
Reading, writing and mathematics are broken into their various aspects, supported by richly detailed illustrations. This app contains all sets of illustrations and the ‘big ideas’ behind them.
You can use the frameworks to: think about your students and how they are progressing; help with moderation and planning; or assist with overall teacher judgments (OTJs) for National Standards.
The frameworks are used in the Progress and Consistency Tool (PaCT).
When browsing the app you can make short notes of your thoughts and ideas as you browse. The notes are saved on the page they were made and dated. Users can also search for notes using a common word or phrase.

How do I delete all last year's notes?
The only way to do this is to uninstall the app and re-download it from the app store. This will also ensure you have the latest version of the app. Please note an app update will save your notes rather than delete them.
Why can't I share my notes via email from within the app?
For privacy reasons this function is not available.
How do I get from the free text search results screen to the page the text is located?
Just tap the body of the text in the result you wish to use.
When will the years 8 – 10 science, social sciences and english illustrations be added?
There are no definite plans as yet, but we intend to extend the content to accommodate these illustrations in a future upgrade.
How many notes can I have on a page?
The number of notes is unlimited.
Can I edit a note?
Not at this stage. You can either add another note, or delete and rewrite it. There are plans to add this function in a later version of the app.
How long can a note be?
Text within a note is unlimited.
