Performance Indicators in Primary Schools

Administering PIPS


The PIPS assessment is an online program.

The teacher works with students on a one-to-one basis, with each assessment taking between 15 and 20 minutes. Student responses are recorded by the teacher. The task becomes progressively more difficult, so that it is extremely rare for even gifted students to reach the ceiling.

The program is tailored to each student's ability. If a student starts to falter in a given section, the program automatically moves on to the next suitable section. In this way the student is not presented with a fixed number of questions that must be attempted, which can be detrimental to a student aware that he or she cannot answer correctly.

The task is designed to measure students in many different contexts and is not designed to assess them against local curriculum objectives.

Refer to the schedule for the assessment timetable.
