2017 vs 2018
2018 Numeracy Results
This report presents the summary graphs for the testing conducted in Grade 2 and Grade 3 during 2018 in The Link schools. In 2018 the assessments, developed by Brombacher and Associates, were the same for both grades. This allows for comparison of performance across grades.
The Link uses the Number Sense workbooks developed by Brombacher and Associates, to help develop the children’s numeracy skills.
“I believe that there are encouraging trends evident in the data collected and summarised in this report. As cautioned before, care should also be taken in assuming that the change in performance level from February to November is due to the activities of The Link alone. In the absence of a control group it is hard to know what part of the increase is the consequence of an additional year of schooling and what part is the consequence of the intervention. That said, the performance on the EGMA assessment is generally encouraging when compared with other data in the EGMA database (approximately 25,000 records) and I do hope that The Link team draws encouragement from this.”

The following graphs summarise the data for all the Link students (by grade) for 2018. It shows an improvement in the scores across the board, but of particular interest is the reduction of leaners who originally scored in the bottom two levels.
