Abstract

Teachers in Western Australia are now expected to use fine-grained assessment measures to ensure compliance with norm-referenced reporting requirements in all K–10 schools. This is a significant change from the Curriculum Framework years, when cruder assessment ‘levels’ were used. Even experienced teachers may not well understand the new expectations, so this article attempts to address that gap by explaining fine-grained assessment and developmental sequences. By better understanding fine-grained assessment, teachers will more easily satisfy the requirements of the Western Australian Curriculum and Assessment Outline.
