Educational Assessment

Educational Assessment in Adelaide

We offer several different types of educational assessments. Each type has a different aim and is conducted differently. Read on to learn about the types of educational assessments we offer, and how we can help to support your child’s learning.

Learning Difficulties Assessment

Currently we are not offering a learning difficulties assessment. We are working on it – watch this space!

Gifted and Talented Children

Gifted and talented children may not be thriving at school, or may simply not be offered the challenges that they need to progress to their full potential. A Giftedness Assessment involves the administration of an accurate intelligence test. The testing session will be for approximately 2 hours, during which time the parent will be interviewed, the child’s intelligence tested and the results will be available. Also, the report will outline for the school the measures that could be taken to extend the child’s ability.

Early Entry

Early Entry Assessments involve testing of intelligence, in the same way as the Gifted and Talented Assessment. The assessment report will make recommendations about the suitability of the child to be granted early entry to school.

Tests Used in the Assessments

The tests that we use are those that are recognised across Australia, indeed across the world, as the gold standard tests for the measurement of intelligence and numeracy and literacy. Assessment takes time and just cannot be done accurately with tests that are quicker to administer.
