e-asTTle Information

Support information for the Ministry of Education Assessment Tool called e-asTTle.


e-asTTle is an online assessment tool, developed to assess students’ achievement and progress in reading, mathematics, writing, and in pānui, pāngarau, and tuhituhi.

The reading and mathematics assessments have been developed primarily for students in years 5–10, but because they test curriculum levels 2–6 they can be used for students in lower and higher year levels. The e-asTTle writing tool has been developed for the assessment of students in years 1–10.

e-asTTle provides teachers and school leaders with information that can be used to inform learning programmes and to apply teaching practice that maximises individual student learning. Schools using asTTle have found it to be a great tool for planning purposes, for helping students to understand their progress, and for involving parents in discussions about how well their children are doing.

e-asTTle is the first bilingual (English and te reo Māori) assessment tool to be developed in New Zealand.
