AlphaAssess contains 28 benchmark books, from Levels 1 to 28.
The benchmark books have been specially designed to provide teachers with information about their students’ literacy development.
The books have been carefully structured and levelled, taking into account the complexity of syntax, the concept and vocabulary load, the contextual support in the illustrations and the size and placement of text on the page.
Teacher resource books accompany the benchmark books. Proformas in the teacher resource book The First Step: Assessing Early Literacy are used in conjunction with the benchmark books to help teachers assess students’ reading level, strategies and comprehension.
