Performance Indicators in Primary Schools

Future schools

 

The PIPS On-Entry Baseline Assessment is a CD-ROM based program which assesses students entering primary school.

It can assist with:     

  • assessing the progress of students in literacy, numeracy and phonological awareness
  • diagnosing individual student work and providing data to indicate what areas students are achieving or underachieving
  • predicting future performance for identifying individuals who might benefit from early intervention.

It is based on international research. All assessment items are correlated with future literacy and numeracy. 

PIPS is not designed to assess students against local curriculum objectives, rather the assessment allows progress to be measured in many different contexts.

It also helps schools in terms of their accountability and reporting.
