TKI Channel search results can be filtered by educational criteria, like Level, learning area or Language.
To filter your search results, click to expand one of the criteria types to the left of the page and select one of the available options. This will filter your results down to items that match your chosen criteria.
TKI is made up of a number of specialised individual communities. When you are on an individual community the TKI search will assume that you want to quickly locate materials only within that community. Search results from within that single community will appear in a dropdown, keeping you on your present page.
School search results can be refined by various criteria - select criteria from the options to the left of the search results. Applied refinements appear at the top left of your search results, and can be removed by clicking their [x] links.
Details for each school can be viewed by clicking the Show more information link beneath each result.
You can also browse for schools visually by region and district - just click on the map of New Zealand to the right of the main 'School search' page.
Applied refinements to your search results appear at the top right of the search results view. They can be removed by clicking their [x] links.
Metadata is information that describes a resource. TKI metadata records contain a range of information about a specific educational resource, like its format, audience, level and learning area, etc. Metadata records allow us to create services like the TKI search result refinements.
The complete TKI search index contains materials from within the TKI communities, digistore, offline Ministry of Education resources, and a wider collection of external quality-assured resources.
The small symbols next to a search result's title highlight aspects of the resource. The New Zealand icon signals a New Zealand resource, a small Ministry of Education logo that the resource was commissioned by the Ministry of Education, etc.
In most web browsers, you can find out what a symbol means by hovering your mouse over it. After a second the symbol's meaning should be displayed.
By default, searching from the TKI bar while on an individual community will search only materials within that community. (To search everything, select the Search all of TKI checkbox).
So to search within a single TKI community, navigate to that community before conducting a TKI search.
By default, searching from the TKI bar while on an individual TKI community will return results only from within that community. These 'local' results will appear in a drop-down over your current page.

A 'School number' or 'MoE Institution number' is a unique identifier assigned to a school by the Ministry of Education. It is the most direct way to locate a specific school in the TKI school search.
