Year 7 Best Start

Students start secondary school with different skills and abilities in literacy and numeracy. It is important that Year 7 teachers have access to information about their new students, to plan their teaching accordingly.

What is Best Start Year 7?

Best Start Year 7 is literacy and numeracy assessment package for schools to use in the first five weeks of Year 7. It is designed to:

  • provide teachers with consistent and up-to-date information about new students' skills and abilities in literacy and numeracy

  • identify students at risk of falling behind

Best Start Year 7 is conducted online in the form of a literacy and a numeracy test.
