Each book contains six practice tests for essential literacy skills assessment.
Each test is based on a text and includes multiple choice questions on understanding the text, short answer questions, questions on language and creative writing activities.
The stimulus material for each test has been carefully chosen to represent a range of different text types, language uses and writing styles. The level of difficulty of each text is designed to allow access to all ability levels whilst challenging more able students.
The reading assessment questions are designed to test the ability of students to decode texts on different levels. The questions also allow for flexible use as they combine multiple choice, short answer and language convention questions.
The style and type of questioning is designed to complement the types of skills expected of students of this age range at the national, state and local level.
Each writing assessment task uses the stimulus material as a basis for writing and provides students with a model for text type and language use. Each test provides for alternate writing tasks that require different forms of written response.
