Best Start Year 7 Assessments - Information for Parents and Carers
10 Feb 2020
Best Start Year 7 is a new online assessment for students that helps provide information for teachers on the literacy and numeracy skills of students at the beginning of Year 7.
The Best Start Year 7 Assessment will take place at our school in Term 1. The assessment covers key literacy and numeracy skills that are important to a student's success in all subjects in high school.
Students come to high school with a range of experiences, skills and abilities in literacy and numeracy. It is important that teachers have current information about their students so that they can plan programs and lessons that best support the learning needs of every student.
The Best Start Year 7 Assessment will be completed at school during class time. No preparation is needed for this assessment. Its purpose is to provide our teachers with additional information to best support the teaching of your child.
Please contact the school if you have any questions regarding the Best Start Year 7 assessment.
