Personalised Assessments - Learner feedback explained

Personalised Assessments are adaptive, meaning that questions are selected based on the responses to previous questions. This provides a tailored assessment ...

The assessments will be used to help us plan future learning activities by providing information on learners’ strengths and areas for improvement in reading and numeracy skills. Teachers will give full consideration to the skills identified by the assessments, not the scores alone, and use the information provided alongside any other relevant classroom-based information.


We will share feedback on numeracy (procedural) and reading assessments with learner reports in July.
