From the TEC: How to use the TEC literacy and numeracy assessment tools – Part 3

The Starting Points Assessment Guide  

This guide has been developed to support Starting Points: Supporting the Learning Progressions for Adult Literacy.  It provides suggestions for assessing adults who are operating below the steps described in the Learning Progressions for Adult Literacy.  The assessment procedures described in this guide are fine-grained and help to identify what a learner does and does not know in relation to the component skills of reading and writing in order to maximize the effectiveness of future instruction.

In 2013, TEC will be working with the Ministry of Education and sector stakeholders to refine the starting points assessment to better reflect learner classification and adapt starting points assessment to specific needs.
