An example fromTable 2 might be that a regional Mäori education strategy is in place. This developmentaloutput indicates that certain relationships had to be in place in order for this stage indevelopment to be achieved. To further investigate this indicator it would be beneficial toknow how well these relationships enhanced or positively influenced the expression of otherkaupapa. This idea is further developed thinking on the following methods.• Descriptive Indicator – that identifies pure data such as gender, or iwi affiliation. This typeof indicator does not feature in the following measuring systems as it exists and generallythere is no relationship change or growth to measure.The indicators were transformed to tikanga; based on the idea that the indicator measured is thegoal or desired end point and which a given tikanga is designed to move towards. As an example,the indicator “healthy paepae” was transformed into a tikanga “Develop numbers of whaikorero,kaikaranga and waiata through the provision of learning to kaumätua wanting to learn and bykaumätua who are willing to teach”.There are a number of other tikanga that might have been developed to achieve this indicatorand express the kaupapa. 34Measuring expressions of kaupapa tuku ihoConsider a Mäori approach where expressions of kaupapa are measured to provide an indicationof the wellbeing of a community. What do you measure and how?This study sets forth a method developed as a contribution towards this important area ofwhakatupu mätauranga. The method is an adaption of theory developed by western scientiststo make accounting adjustments to GDP in order to make corrections for some of its failings. Asdiscussed previously, while GDP is a good measurement of growth, it completely fails to reflectin any way the full range of costs and benefits associated with achieving economic growth ofthis kind. The genuine progress indicator (GPI) involves the use of accounting adjustments thatseek to correct these problems.33 For growth measurements above 100 itwould be necessary to correspondinglyscale the values used in the score strategy.For example, for a growth score of75,000, the score strategy would involveadjustments of +/- 1,000. Likewise, fora growth score of 750,000, the scorestrategy would involve adjustments of+/- 10,000. The scale adjustment madeto the score strategy involves division ofthe growth score by a factor of 100. Thiscorrection would mean that quality scoreadjustments were of consistent scaleacross all growth score measurements.34 Dr Cole believes 10-15% would be theminimum you would use - He ÖrangaAcademic Paper.17
