The ACER Progressive Achievement Tests in Written Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar (PAT-SPG) is the newest addition to the PAT suite.
Designed to assess students’ understanding of the standard Australian English language conventions of grammar and punctuation, it comprises two components: Written spelling (Years 2 – 10) and Grammar and Punctuation (Years 3 – 10).
PAT-SPG has been developed especially, but not exclusively, for use in Australian schools. It provides teachers with objective information about students’ spelling, punctuation and grammar skills so that realistic learning goals can be set and effectiveness of teaching strategies can be monitored.
It is a multiple-choice assessment that is suitable for groups.
Currently available as a paper and pen assessment.
NEW March 2013: PAT Punctuation & Grammar has just been launched as an online assessment. Please note that the spelling component is not yet available online. To register for PAT Punctuation & Grammar online please visit http://schools.acer.edu.au/clients/new
