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.


Can I use my NZCER Marking Site Credentials to log into NZCER Assist?


No. Users will have to register themselves into the NZCER Assist system. The login details from the NZCER Marking Site cannot be used to log in into the NZCER Assist system. However, you can use your existing NZCER Marking credentials to access historical data and reports in NZCER Marking until your historic data has been brought across into the Assist site.


Step 1: Register for an account within NZCER Assist 


(a) Onboarding Link


Organisation’s Administrator will share an onboarding link with its staff. This link is unique to your organisation only and will immediately grant you teacher access role.

(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.

Step 2: Teachers must be assigned to their class


Once the teacher accounts have been created and teachers can successfully log in, teachers have to ensure that the administrator has assigned them their class. Dashboard appears with all the assessments and teachers will have access to all their students.
