English Assessments for all grades Years 1 – 12 inclusive

Below you will find English assessments for grade 1-12. Each assessment has a PDF for the student and for the assessor. There are also a few important things to keep in mind.

Why English Assessments often don’t matter

Usually, companies do assessments to highlight all the possible knowledge gaps a student might have. These “gaps” are then used to create a sense of urgency to sell more tutoring or practice materials, or whatever the company is selling. This is not the spirit in which these assessments were created and as such they are not designed to be absolutely exhaustive in terms of content.

English assessments that cover every tiny bit of content are usually not a realistic reflection of the student’s knowledge gaps. Unless the student specifically prepared for the assessment and diligently revised all of the content from the previous year, they are simply not going to remember everything during the assessment even if they are a top student. It is important that we don’t mix up a “knowledge gap” with unpreparedness.

Beyond assessing for knowledge gaps

  • Does the student study enough and do their homework?
  • Do they backcheck their work properly or do they make lots of silly mistakes?
  • Do they truly comprehend the content or are they Rule Dependent and struggle with worded problems?
  • Do they take notes in a way that enables meaningful revision?
  • Do they lay their working out with correct formatting to increase readability, avoid silly mistakes, maximize partial marks?
  • Are they afraid of being wrong and give up whenever they get stuck? Or are they comfortable to take risks?

If a student is just memorizing what to do and not comprehending it; or if they just can’t help making silly mistakes in every question, then it doesn’t matter if we discover and close all their knowledge gaps. They still won’t perform well.

It is important to uncover knowledge gaps of course, but it is just as important to understand the student’s true challenges in the subject, their study skills and habits. Without a focus on improving how the student learns, the same problems will repeat themselves. Not all of a student’s challenge is due to knowledge gaps. Why did those gaps develop? An honest English assessment must consider knowledge gaps AND study skills/habits.

About these English assessments

Each assessment includes content that a student should typically know as they enter the grade. For example, the grade 5 English assessment has content that a student should know as they are entering year 5.

These assessments are designed to be done together with the student. They are not tests. The assessor/teacher/tutor/parent should sit with the student and follow the instructions in the Assessor PDF. The assessor should lead the student through the assessment, feeling free to prompt them and ask questions when necessary.

No time restrictions are intended, so that the assessor can really get insight into the student’s thinking process.

What they say about our tutoring

Thanks for the email. We are very happy with Lisa. She is bright and keen and has established a very easy rapport with Xiao. Xiao actually really likes her. We feel very confident that Xiao will continue to make progress with her maths.
Thank you for your follow up.  Ty is progressing well and we are all happy with the way things are going (mum, dad and Ty).  Apart from the normal issues, that sometimes he just “doesn’t feel like it” at the beginning of the session, he enjoys the tutoring and is gaining benefits already.  Though Ty has always had quite a good understanding of Maths, the idea of tutoring was to…
