NZ History

With a compulsory New Zealand history curriculum to be developed over the coming years it’s topical to examine how New Zealand understands its own history. Qwizard crunched a few numbers to see how New Zealand pub quiz teams perform in certain areas.

Knowledge on the New Zealand wars shows an immediate weakness – with 6 specific questions across almost 1,500 players showing an average correct score of just 29.7%.

Meanwhile, questions on New Zealand political history also demonstrate a clear, relative gap in knowledge. Across 12 specific questions on pre-World War II New Zealand politics, and over 3,000 players, teams scored an average of just 38.7%.

These results compare to an average score on all History questions of 60.9%.

The data tends to reinforce the need for the development of a relevant New Zealand curriculum.
