How Flipped Works

This is not a drill. The Learning Place (who is an NCEA accredited provider) has partnered with LearnCoach (who does online teaching) to create Flipped. With Flipped, you can earn extra NCEA credits, increase your grades, or get ahead for next year. The future is here: online assessments at anytime from anywhere.

1. Pick an Internal

Check out our list of NCEA internal assessments and pick any you like. You can choose any subject from any year level. It doesn’t matter if you’re enrolled in that subject or even enrolled in school, all internals are available to everyone. Can’t choose which assessment? It doesn’t matter, you can try as many as you like, at the same time.

2. Start Learning Online

As soon as you’ve subscribed, you can begin the learning for any internal assessment by watching video tutorials. All teaching will be provided (on video), including helpful examples. You don’t need to wait for your teacher or tutor before you can begin.

3. Work on Your Assessment

As soon as you’ve completed the learning (step 2), you can begin a real NCEA internal assessment task. Tasks will be provided and, in some cases, you can choose your own task. Tasks could be reports, presentations, projects, portfolios, performances or traditional tests. These tasks are the work that is submitted for marking and can eventually earn you sweet sweet credits.

4. Submit your Internal

No school required, just submit online. Once you’ve completed your assessment task, you submit your work online and it will be sent to The Learning Place. The Learning Place is a registered provider with NZQA and issues NCEA credits to thousands of NCEA students every year.

5. Earn NCEA Credits

The Learning Place will mark, moderate and submit your results to NZQA, which usually takes 2-3 weeks (although, no promises). Any credits you earn will appear online in your NZQA Record of Learning (next to your school results). This means that NCEA credit earned on the Flipped programme can count towards overall endorsements, rank score, and university entrance (note: these do not count towards subject endorsements).

6. Say Goodbye to Due Dates

We want to remove all barriers to success. If you’re prepared to do the work, we want to give you the rewards. This means that you can do work whenever you want. You can increase grades from last year (think endorsements or university entrance) and you can even get a head start on the year.
