School Entry Assessment
At the beginning of the Foundation year the students at school participate in the Prep Entry Assessment Program which is used in Victorian Government schools.
The assessment tasks are designed to assist teachers to gather information about your child’s literacy and numeracy understandings. This information will help the school to provide most informative and effective teaching and learning program for the students.
Students enrolling in to Nilma at other year levels will also complete some Nilma Primary School assessment tasks to inform individual learning needs.
