The Summary of student responses is available once the Best Start Kindergarten Assessment has been lodged for a student. 


NOTE:  This summary is to inform school staff only and is not a document to be distributed to parents and carers.  Please see the Parent feedback summary for further information about communication with families.


The summary of student responses :

  • reflects the Best Start Kindergarten Assessment intent of creating a positive start to school for all students 
  • provides parents/carers with clear information about literacy and numeracy skills which their child demonstrated during the Best Start Kindergarten Assessment
  • provides information based on actual items assessed
