Information statement
This statement provides information related to:
• the purpose of assessment
• assessment techniques
• using data to inform future directions.
February Checkpoint assessments
The February Checkpoint assessments use the
Prep Indicators to gather evidence of children’s
literacy and numeracy learning during everyday
experiences across learning areas.
February work samples
The February work samples:
• assist teachers to interpret evidence of
children’s demonstrations of the indicators
• describe the teaching and learning contexts
• provide annotations of teachers’ analysis of
evidence.
June Checkpoint assessments
The June Checkpoint assessments use
the Year 1 Indicators to gather evidence of
children’s literacy and numeracy learning
during everyday experiences across
learning areas.
June Checkpoint assessments — Literacy
The diverse family
• Viewing and Reading
• Writing and Creating
Spelling search
• Writing and Creating
June Checkpoint assessments — Numeracy
Post office
• Calculating and estimating
• Using fractions, decimals, percentages, ratios and
rates indicators
• Using spatial reasoning
• Using measurement
Round the ridges

Patterns in songs and games
• Recognising and using patterns and relationships
October Checkpoint assessments
The October Checkpoint assessments for:
• Numeracy use the same Year 1 indicators as
the June Checkpoint assessments
• Literacy use additional indicators for Writing
and Creating and the same indicators as the
June Checkpoint assessments for Speaking
and Listening, Viewing and Reading.
Teachers gather evidence of literacy and
numeracy learning during everyday experiences
across learning areas.
October Checkpoint assessments —

Teachers select either Shopping or Shadows, which
assess the same indicators.

Data Analysis Assessment Record (DAAR)
Teachers:
• make a Yes/No judgment about each indicator
selected
• record children’s demonstration of each
indicator on the DAAR
• analyse the data to inform future teaching and
learning.
Future Directions
This information provides suggestions for
planning future literacy and numeracy
learning.
Teachers use analysed data from the
Checkpoint assessments to determine the
focus for explicit teaching in literacy or
numeracy.
