Documents to assist in delivery of assessments

The assessments and associated documentation are organised in colour groupings to represent the appropriate year level:

Red
Students who performed below the year 3 national benchmark in 2007 and
 are now in year 4 in 2008.

Yellow
Students who performed below the year 5 benchmark in 2007 and
 are now in year 6 in 2008.

Green
Students who performed below the year 7 benchmarks in 2007 and are now in year 8 in 2008.

Blue
Students who performed below the year 9 benchmarks in 2007 and are now in year 10 in 2008.

Colours have been used, rather than grades, so that if students experience difficulty with the year 5 assessment, tutors may use the year 3 assessment.
