PAT Assessments 2020
Posted on September 22, 2020
Week 1 and 2 of term 4
As part of DfE policy, all year 3-10 students are required to complete diagnostic assessments called Progressive Achievement Tests (PAT). These assessments give valuable information to teachers about your child’s current learning needs and enables them to better plan learning programs as they progress through their schooling. The diagnostic assessments are conducted to measure student growth.
Students will complete Reading and Numeracy assessments during week 1 and 2 of term 4. Teachers will schedule the tests through the week as part of their regular lesson planning. The test is done online.
During normal lesson time, teachers will support students to understand, prepare for and start the assessment.
Please ensure your child does the assessments on their own as this helps with planning and targeting the learning for each student.
If you have any queries, please don’t hesitate to contact Casey Hall or Veronika Jeske.
