Early Years Evaluation (EYE):
Transitioning to school

Identify the developmental skills of children as they prepare for kindergarten with the Early Years Evaluation. Play-based assessment methods gather leading indicator data to help educators guide school planning and monitor each child’s progress. Immediate, easy-to-interpret reports empower teachers and multidisciplinary teams to personalize each child’s learning experience to ensure a successful transition to school.

Confident Learners:
Unlocking each child’s potential

Plan, develop and measure the progress of a child’s skill development over time with this whole-school and whole-community program. Confident Learners was developed with Indigenous partner schools to reduce the risk of literacy failure through early literacy assessment, structured learning objectives and evidence-based instruction during the primary school grades. A bank of over five hundred engaging and culturally relevant learning activities, with an online application, allows teachers to plan their lessons to meet the individual needs of their students.
