Introduction to the Assessment Tool

Workshop outline


Session 1: Introduction to the Assessment Tool

This session will include; accessing the Assessment Tool, assessment selection and creation, interpreting individual and class data, the Gain Report, engaging learners, and an update about the recently released Youth Assessment options. There will also be a Q&A component to this session.


Session 2: Introduction to Pathways Awarua

This session has two components. The first looks at the key features of Pathways Awarua and the ways that educators can use the over 300 learning modules and games with their learners.  The second component examines the professional development modules available on Pathways Awarua and in particular the pathway of modules that enables an educator to gain the National Certificate in Adult Literacy and Numeracy (vocational).  There will be opportunities for Q&A through the session.


Session 3: Linking the Assessment Tool results to classroom practice

This session links the Assessment Tool results to practical classroom strategies that effectively develop learners’ literacy and numeracy skills.  It will review how tutors, and organisations, can draw on the Learning Progression resources to planintegrate and deliver these strategies while continuing to deliver vocational content.  This session will also include a review of key information and resources on the NCLANA website.

I note you mention information will be given at your workshops by one particular provider of the NCALNE (vocational option only) . I take it that all of the other providers of NCALNE (both Vocational and Educator) have also been invited to give information to tutors and providers on the range of options for obtaining this qualification. The way in which Pathways Awarua Professional Development options are currently set up tutors new to the area may presume this is the only option for obtaining this qualification.
