Is your e-asTTle testing as good as it could be? Are you getting the most effective use out of your e-asTTle results?
Make sure that your e-asTTle testing makes a real difference to teaching and learning.
Evaluation Associates holds the contract with the Ministry of Education to provide nationwide support for schools using the e-asTTle assessment tool. e-asTTle stands for Electronic Assessment Tools for Teaching and Learning, and we work with schools to enable them to get the best out of the tool so that the results can truly enhance teaching and learning. Our facilitators have wide knowledge and experience of e-asTTle, having worked with hundreds of schools across the country to improve their e-asTTle knowledge and use.
The MoE-funded PLD for schools takes the form of workshops held at intervals in locations throughout New Zealand. In addition, there is some allocated targeted support for schools already using the e-asTTle tool. This is flexible to needs, and may include phone or Skype conversations, e-mail or in-school PLD, depending on circumstances.
For MoE-funded targeted support, please email email@example.com with a request for assistance.
In addition to initial, ministry-funded support, Evaluation Associates is able to provide customised e-asTTle support to schools. We can offer individualised professional development to schools or Kāhui Ako that wish to maximise the potential of e-asTTle. This option provides an opportunity for you to learn and use the powerful functionality that e-asTTle has to offer in order to meet your specific needs.
We can help you use the tool to:
- help set teaching and learning priorities
- support teachers to group for needs
- support students to develop learning goals
- support schools to develop a culture of shared responsibility
- contribute to overall teacher judgments for reporting to parents, boards and the Ministry of Education
- assess value added
- provide evidence for school review

"Thanks so much for the workshop yesterday. The staff really got a lot out of it. It will make the introduction of the tool next year so much easier for everybody.
It was a great mix of theory and practical and we really appreciated the way you approached it from a needs-must "what will work best for us" perspective."
