ACE: Australian Curriculum English

What are the Language Conventions Assessment and Practice Tests?

t
The ACE: Language Conventions Assessment and Practice Tests series provides teachers with a

g h m
practical resource to measure students progress in the Language Content strand of the Australian

r i a
Curriculum English. There are five books in the series, one book for each year level from Year 2

t
to Year 6 (as labelled in the Australian Curriculum).

y
The knowledge, skills and understanding of Language Conventions outlined in the curriculum
underpin the teaching scope and sequence that forms the basis of these tests. This scope and

er
sequence is outlined in the Contents (pages 34). Use these pages to find the appropriate test
p

for the particular focus you want to assess or want to have students practise.
Co

The tests cover the four core aspects of English language outlined in the curriculum:

ial
Spelling
Punctuation
Grammar

For review purposes only


Vocabulary.
The first three of these aspects are tested directly in the annual national NAPLAN* Language
Convention tests, while the last aspect (vocabulary) is tested indirectly as part of spelling and
grammar. The tests in this series are grouped in the same way.
M

l ia
The curriculum states that grammar is an integral component of each of the three strands of
the syllabus Language, Literature and Literacy. In the Language strand, grammar refers to
tra
the language we use and the description of language as a system. The tests cover grammatical

m
knowledge, skills and understanding in both language structure (syntax) and the meaning of
ac

us

language (semantics) at three levels:


1. word
i l la A
2. sentence
3. text. n Education
Vocabulary is tested within the spelling and grammar tests to address the vocabulary expansion
aspect of the Language strand. Specific spelling and grammar tests are designed to expand students
vocabulary of individual words and phrases, and to help them understand various grammatical
contexts. In the spelling section, thematic vocabulary tests cover a range of targeted orthographic
features.The vocabulary spelling tests require students to apply the necessary strategies, including
phonic, visual and morphemic knowledge. In the grammar tests, vocabulary is tested through
homographs, prefixes and suffixes, synonyms, antonyms, figurative expressions and idioms.

5
Test format
The focus for each test is deliberately omitted from the test paper to avoid test-wise students using the
knowledge to answer questions and therefore adversely affecting the results. Instead, each test has a code
number at the top of the page that refers back to the Contents page. Spelling tests are numbered S1,
S2 etc; punctuation tests are numbered P1, P2 etc; and grammar tests are numbered G1, G2 etc.
This numbering system is also used on the two Student Record Sheets on pages 8 and 9 and on
the answers at the back of the book.
The questions in each test have been crafted to model the style and quality of the NAPLAN* Language

h t m
Conventions tests. This provides an opportunity to teach strategies for answering questions in this

ig a
style, and to reinforce the need for students to check their work.

y r t
The series uses the following test format:
single word written response items (spelling)
multiple-choice items (punctuation and grammar).

er
p

Spelling is divided into two parts: those containing circled mistakes that require correcting, and those
Co

containing unidentified mistakes. The latter part tests students ability first to identify the misspelled

ial
word (a proofreading skill) and secondly to correct it.
Grammar, punctuation and vocabulary items require students to recognise and make sense of a variety
of language content. Their ability to edit and manipulate a range of language formats is also tested.

Range of difficulty of test items


For review purposes only
The tests in this series of books cover the Australian Curriculum English Language Content
descriptions for years 2 to 6 as outlined in the curriculum. Although the tests in each particular
book are aimed at students in one year level, the questions cover a wide range of difficulty. This is
M

a deliberate strategy based upon the fundamental psychometric principle that students at any given

l ia
year level demonstrate a distribution of abilities up to two years below and above that year level.
These tests accordingly span a four-year spectrum so as to test students in the upper and lower
tra
ability groups of any class cohort. Depending on the students in your class, you may consider also
using other books in the series.

How can you use this series in your classroom?
A
n Education
These tests aim to:
support the teaching and learning of the Language Content strand of the curriculum by
reinforcing students key literacy skills in Language Conventions
provide teachers with an assessment resource for measuring students progress in the Language
Content areas specified in the curriculum
prepare students for the annual NAPLAN* Language Conventions tests.
In short, the tests aim to increase students knowledge, skills and understanding of the English
language and how it works at the level of the word, the sentence and the text, and to help students to
communicate effectively through coherent, well-structured sentences and texts.They provide a valuable
and flexible teaching resource that can be used in several ways to increase the literacy levels of students.

Diagnostic pre-topic teststo help identify student needs and refine teaching programs.
Whole class discussion on specific language topicsusing enlarged copies or
IWB images of the test pages for detailed discussion of specific language topics, test
formats and individual item styles, as well as reviewing answers.
Worksheets for student class work, extension work or homeworkto consolidate
and reinforce class work.
Summative assessment toolsto review completed class work, to monitor progress,
and to diagnose and address any individual problems. Resulting information can be used

h t m
to prepare student semester reports and feedback to parents.

ig a
Preparation for the annual NAPLAN* Language Conventions teststo help

r t
students approach the NAPLAN* tests with confidence. A complete NAPLAN*-style

y
practice test is included at the back of this book to familiarise students with its format,
language and style. This should be completed within 40 minutes so students experience
the same conditions as the actual test. Even if students are not sitting for the test that

er
p

calendar year, they will benefit from being better prepared at a later time.
Whole class discussion on the various test item formatsto reinforce the
Co

strategies to answer test items and prepare the students well for test conditions.

ial
How to mark the tests
The administration and marking of the tests is designed for maximum flexibility. All written
response items (spelling) and multiple-choice items (punctuation and grammar) are worth
one mark each. In some NAPLAN* tests, some direct speech punctuation items require

For review purposes only


students to shade two bubbles. These items are still worth one mark (ie there is no partial
credit). For spelling tests, ignore capitalisation if the word starts a sentence.
The design of the tests deliberately incorporates as many items per page as possible, although
it means that the score for some tests is an uneven number. Comparing odd test numbers is
M

l ia
difficult, so it is a good idea to convert students raw scores into percentages. This has two
main advantages:
tra
It assists in mapping individual student progress across the range of language
convention skills.

m
ac

us

It facilitates comparisons between students performances in the class and across


the school.
i l la A
n Education
A students score can easily be converted into a percentage using the following formula:

students raw score 100 = % (students raw score total test score 100 = %)
total test score

For example, a score of 8/13 for a grammar test is 8 13 100 = 61.5%.

Two Student Record Sheets are provided, one for the spelling tests, punctuation tests and
the NAPLAN*-style practice test (page 8), and one for the grammar tests (page 9). These can be
photocopied and used to record students progress across the various tests.
