Writing – AsTTle Test

Year 10 students today all attended and completed a writing test in the hall which is currently set up for examinations that the senior students are sitting. The test was asking for a writing sample, prompting the students to write about and explain a community facility that they belief we need. Most considered the Newlands community and proposed everything from theme parks to cinemas, to youth centres and community hubs. It was fascinating catching some of these ideas as I walked around the room.

Writing is a fundamentally important skill, and this test will be used to measure the shifts that have occurred in each students’ writing, and more importantly determine what next steps there are for each learner. This previous blogpost on writing contained a plethora of information and links to help further develop this important learning area.
