Achievement Standards Assessment - English: Comprehension

The assessments in this series are written to fully support implementation of the Language Achievement Standards for Years 1 to 6 outlined in the Australian curriculum. Each book contains 36 assessment tests containing 20 questions with a four-page test for the end of each term. These books help teachers identify the learning ability and level of individual students. The assessments in the Achievement Standards Assessment - English Comprehension series fully support implementation of the English Comprehension Achievement Standards for Years 1–6. Each title includes a CD-ROM of IWB-friendly, interactive PDFs of the whole book that can be installed on your school network, and student result logs. Included assessments can be used in a number of ways:

  • Complete an assessment test each week for the whole class by: distributing the test to each student, using an interactive whiteboard to display the test at the front of the classroom and going through each question with the whole class, installing the tests on your school network for students to complete using the interactive PDFs and saving their results.
  • Matching a test to a teacher’s classroom program
  • Working with small groups that require support by: sharing the reading of the questions, asking for oral answers and keenly observing students’ progress
  • Individual students complete a test with teacher/teacher aide assistance.
