Assessment resources

Assessments in this section support teachers to know more about students’ literacy and numeracy skills at different stages throughout their schooling. Student responses are mapped to NSW syllabuses and the National Literacy and Numeracy Learning Progressions. Feedback from these assessments allow for targeted teaching that meets students’ specific learning needs.

Resources are available to assist teachers to access and analyse assessment feedback, inform teaching and learning and communicate with parents and carers about student progress.
