Grammar & Punctuation
Jet Grammar & Punctuation is a multistage, computer-adaptive assessment, providing rich diagnostic information about students’ grammar and punctuation knowledge and skills. Students are presented with questions within their ability range.
As grammar and punctuation are foundational to the development of core literacy skills, it is critical that teachers establish early on in the year each student’s capabilities. It is recommended that the assessment is scheduled early in the academic year to provide teachers with sufficient data to inform their teaching and effect change. Teachers may elect to schedule a second assessment later in the year.
It is precise
The computer-adaptive nature of Jet Grammar & Punctuation elicits accurate diagnostic information which clearly shows the strengths and weaknesses in grammar from word to text level, and in punctuation. This helps teachers adjust and target their lessons for better results.
Australian curriculum linked
Our literacy experts developed Jet Grammar & Punctuation based on the Australian English curriculum. Teachers can track progress against the curriculum.
The sophisticated test design reduces potential student anxiety and enables them to be more engaged. Questions are interactive and pitched at individual ability.
The fast turnaround of key results allows teachers to quickly adjust their teaching and learning programs.
Teachers can choose to schedule the assessment anytime within each broad sitting window.
For all students
Jet Grammar & Punctuation is available to all students in Years 3 to 6.
With the inclusion of curriculum indicators from Years 1 and 2 at the lower end, and from Years 7 and 8 at the upper end, it is possible to report on students who are performing below and above expectations.
Using the reports
As this assessment has been designed primarily as a teacher tool, the results will be provided to the teacher for interpretation.
The reports provide information about knowledge and skills assessed and include exemplars.
The intention is to support teachers in focusing on teaching the knowledge and skills, rather than on answering particular questions.
Knowledge and skills are assessed at levels of cognitive complexity that match student year level and/or ability.
Benefits of the reports
The primary purpose of this computer-adaptive assessment is to provide teachers with rich and timely diagnostic information.
The reports will help schools:
- establish overall performance at school, year, class and student levels
- identify areas of strength and weakness at group, student and subdomain levels
- decide student groupings in the classroom
- adjust lesson plans to meet the needs of students
- track progress over time.

Each student answers the same number of questions; the questions they receive are tailored depending upon their performance at each stage (module) of the assessment. As a result, teachers will obtain a precise measurement of each student’s grammar and punctuation knowledge and skills.
All the items are closed response and students can respond in different ways to answer the questions. The response types include multiple choice, multiple response, matching and sequencing.
Engaging and familiar
Jet Grammar & Punctuation uses common online interactions that students are likely to be familiar with, such as: click on a bubble, click on a drop-down menu, click on a ‘text spot’ and click-drag-and-drop.
