    Default Calling all teachers! Help me!

    Hi all!

    I am desperately trying to find something to reference for an assignment due at midnight. I cannot find it anywhere!

    I need something that explicitly states the benchmarks for literacy at the end of the different stages of primary education. Specifically S1.

    The teacher of the students' I am doing my assignment on told me it was Level 30, but I can't find this in writing and would really like to reference it.

    Thanks!

    Do you mean PM benchmark reading level? And what year level? Halfway through year 1 (eg. 0.5)?

    Is she referring to the achievement standards ( c grade descriptors) or something the school is using to assess literacy such as PM benchmark?

    By the end of year two. I don't know - I think she was talking about reading levels with those reader programmes. Is that what PM benchmark reading level is?

    I started this degree with a year of credit from my old degree, so I have essentially been thrown completely into the deep end!

    Kindergarten is level 7, year 1 is level 16 and year 2 is level 26 that is the PM benchmark. No links sorry.

    PM benchmarks tend to be the most common 'levels' referred to in lower primary. I do have a chart at school that has the levels by year level but everything like this will always offer a 'range' not an endpoint. Sorry, I don't keep much of that stuff at home.

    I Googled and found a document but I'm on my phone, so can't link to the PDF. Google South Australia reading text level guide. This document references that it has adapted from the PM system and offers L24-26 as end of grade 2. This document would be suitable to reference for your assignment.

    DD was reading PM L24 at the end of grade 1 in Vic and marked as 12m ahead in reading. So that agrees with what the above document says.

    Yeah in SA we have to stop at Level 24 in the data we present for the end of Year 2 (even if they are above that).
