Literacy Testing in 2021 at KHS – On Demand and PAT Reading
Leader of Literacy
This year we have continued to use On Demand Literacy testing in Reading, Language Skills and Word Building to determine our students’ skill levels and growth. Data is central to our successful teaching and learning programs, and On Demand is one set of data that assists teachers in targeting their curriculum to meet the needs of all students. With a strong focus on Literacy Across the Curriculum and guided by our school goal of improving our students’ literacy outcomes, we remain committed to collating, analysing and using the diagnostic information these tests provide to drive our pedagogy and practices. This year, we have also added the PAT Reading literacy test to our data set and the specific information around reading comprehension PATR offers will add yet another layer of useful data analytics.
