Calling all pre-accredited language and literacy teachers in Gippsland!
The SPALG project is facilitating a one day professional development session around the recently developed Pre-accredited Initial Assessment Kit.
The Pre-accredited Initial Assessment Kit (PRIAK) was developed by the Keysborough Learning Centre (KLC) with funding from the ACFE Board Capacity and Innovation Fund (CAIF) following research conducted by KLC, which found that 95% of managers and teachers supported the introduction of standardised initial assessment for language and literacy learners.
PRIAK provides standardised assessment tools for determining the oracy, reading and writing skills of adults wishing to access pre-accredited language and/or literacy programs. Initial assessment is conducted before placing a new learner in a pre-accredited language and literacy class. It assesses their entry-level skills.
Come and listen to Dr Lynda Achren and Marj Sjostrom, formerly from KLC, talk about how literacy practitioners across Victoria can use the kit.
This hands on workshop will be a deep dive into assessment of language and literacy levels, and at the end of the session you will understand more about customised assessment, how PRIAK fits in with the Australian Core Skills Framework (ACSF) , the tasks and a suggested procedure, as well as advice on class placement.
