Pragmatica takes part in Māori and Pacific evaluation projects when invited by Māori and Pacific colleagues.
The Māori Agribusiness Prototypes Project Evaluation for the Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI) assessed how well, and in what ways, MPI supported Māori asset owners to make the most of the yield of their primary assets.
The evaluation found there were effective partnerships. The evaluation also showed the positive ways MPI worked with and supported Māori to achieve their goals. Nan Wehipeihana and Judy Oakden undertook this project.
Rangiātea is a major research project that draws together a rich array of examples from five high-performing, mainstream secondary schools. The research and case exemplars explain practical ways to raise Māori student achievement. They show how to build effective relationships with whānau. They also explain how to set up sound positive leadership in secondary schools in Aotearoa New Zealand. Judy Oakden, Nan Wehipeihana, Kellie Spee and Kataraina Pipi, undertook this project.
Here is the Ministry of Education portal to Rangiātea – to access the five case studies and exemplars.
Judy Oakden was part of the team for the Evaluation of the Māori Oral Health Providers Project for the Ministry of Health, led by Nan Wehipeihana.
