What changed?

The following updates were released to ALAN and PLAN2:

  1. Enhancement: ALAN homepage re-design
    • The Assessing Literacy and Numeracy (ALAN) homepage is re-designed to provide users with more information about the ALAN apps and links to professional learning.
    • Visit the ALAN homepage re-design page for more details.

  2. New feature: Manage groups in PLAN2
    • Teachers will be able to manage their custom student groups without having the need for ALAN Administration access.
    • Teachers will be able to view, create and edit custom student groups by accessing the "Manage groups" in the PLAN2 menu. 
    • This new feature will support teachers in: 
      • creating high school subject classes
      • creating custom student groups for literacy and numeracy learning
      • creating their own student groups without the need to have ALAN Administrator access
      • creating groups from across year levels and classes for different learning purposes
    • Visit the Manage groups in PLAN2 page for a step-by-step guide.

  3. Enhancement: Class observations across learning areas
    • In Class observations, teachers will be able to record and maintain their own observations for a student or a selected class, subject or group and to view observations made in other classes, subjects or groups for the same students. 
    • This enhancement will support teachers in: 
      • monitoring students’ demonstrations of literacy and numeracy understandings in their own specific class, group or subject context
      • gaining a comprehensive understanding of their students’ skills by being able to see how consistently they are demonstrating them in different learning area contexts
      • collaborating with other teachers on school identified priorities in literacy and numeracy and targeting literacy and numeracy across the curriculum.
    • Visit the Class observations across learning areas page for a step-by-step guide.
