New online ESOL Assessment: Starting Points Listening

The NZCER have just released the Starting Points Listening to the Adult Literacy and Numeracy Assessment Tool. Here’s the blurb:

Starting Points Listening is one of two online, adaptive assessment options designed for learners who are at or below koru/step one of the Learning Progressions for Adult Literacy.

Starting Points Listening assesses a learner’s ability to understand basic, everyday words in spoken English. The main focus is listening. It is suitable only for beginning English language learners (ESOL), particularly those new to Aotearoa New Zealand.

For more information on how to use Starting Points Listening, please see the attached PDF.
