Grammar & Punctuation offers schools rich information about their student’s skills and needs. This provides an opportunity for targeted teaching to improve literacy outcomes.
Hear from Alex Damo, Assistant Principal at St Pius X College Chatswood, about how the Grammar & Punctuation assessment is being used at his school.
Grammar & Punctuation is a computer-adaptive assessment for students in Years 3 to 6. It provides rich diagnostic information of students’ grammar and punctuation knowledge and skills to enable better targeted teaching.
The Grammar & Punctuation sitting periods are Thursday 1 March 2018 to Friday 29 June 2018 and Monday 10 September 2018 to Friday 7 December 2018.

Good grammar and punctuation skills establish a foundation for effective communication. In a digital age that encourages a variety of communication styles, and in a crowded curriculum, finding effective teaching models is more important and more challenging than ever.
Our team of assessment experts has developed Grammar and Punctuation, the first of our new Checkpoint Assessments, to provide the information and insights all teachers need to help establish and maintain the literacy foundations all students deserve.
