What is Best Start?

The Best Start Kindergarten Assessment is a state-wide assessment that helps teachers identify the English literacy and numeracy skills of each student at the beginning of Kindergarten. 

For more information, view the Best Start Kindergarten Assessment - Parent Brochure 

Literacy Assessment 

The literacy tasks are designed to identify whether students can write their name, recognise sounds, letters and familiar words, and recall details about a short book that has been read to them.

Numeracy Assessment

The numeracy tasks are related to early number concepts and are designed to identify how well a student can count, which numbers they can recognise, whether they can count objects, add or subtract small numbers; and recognise repeating patterns.
