What it is

The series is a comprehensive set of assessments, for primary and secondary students. 

Reach Assessments provide knowledge to educators and are a powerful diagnostic tool for future planning. The assessments are based on the curricula for the relevant year. Items range from recall and routine application, through to more demanding questions.

This series is available in both online and paper format.

Central to this series is an online reporting system, which uses a progression scale for each subject.
