This week and next, Year 11 students at the ASMS will be undertaking the REACH assessments in English and Mathematics. These are online quizzes from UNSW which replace the function of the former paper-based ICAS tests which we have run with our Year 11s every year.

The purpose of these assessments is to give our Year 11 students experience at sitting down to an external assessment, and to gather some feedback for students which they can utilise to understand their potential areas for growth in literacy and numeracy. It is not necessary for students to study or prepare for these assessments, just to do what they can on the day.
