First language assessment materials

Level 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10
Copy Only
These materials comprise a series of reading and writing tasks of increasing complexity. As far as possible the tasks reflect the kind of early learning experiences that students might be expected to have had, if they have previously begun to learn to read and write in another language. A range of people including Multicultural Education Aides (MEAs) have been consulted in the authentication of the materials and tasks. The target student group are newly arrived students entering Australian schools at the upper primary and secondary level who have an Arabic, Chinese, Khmer, Somali, Turkish or Vietnamese language background.
