Each developmental Set in the program contains an Assessment Pack to support teachers with the placement of students and also to track progress during the teaching and learning cycle.
Regular opportunities for student discussion and reflection also allow teachers to observe students’ understanding of content, concepts, and strategies.
In addition, student self-assessment is embedded throughout the program.
Each Assessment Pack contains:
- Assessment Manual — a detailed resource that guides teachers with placing students, managing the program, and using assessment to inform instruction
- Reading Strategy Assessment Cards — three cards at different levels inform the teacher of the skills and strategies that students use or neglect when reading informational texts
- Locating and Using Information Cards—three cards at different levels assess the students’ ability to locate, use and understand the diverse visual elements of informational text
