2017 Year 8 Allwell Test

Friday 28th July 2017

Allwell testing is conducted for students in Year 8 to allow the school to monitor student progress in between NAPLAN testing in Years 7 and 9

Allwell Test Information

The Allwell test is the same test students sat upon entry to Year 7.

How will Waverley use this information?

When combined with the NAPLAN data the College will have four years of data measurement to feedback to you regarding your son. We also use this data in a variety of ways to improve the delivery of curriculum within the school and to assist with subject selection pathways in Year 9 and Year 11.

After the testing day you will be provided with a written report, summarising your son’s results when they are returned to the school. Please allow a few weeks after the test date to receive these.

How does my son prepare for these tests?

There is no course material to study prior to the day.  It is a measurement, identical to NAPLAN, to give the school a picture of how students are progressing during Year 8. It is vitally important on the day for your son to try his best, read the instructions carefully and use every minute to maximum effect.

What happens if my son is absent from school that day?

There will be another day allocated to enable students to complete the test if they are away.

On the Testing morning

  • Bring 2 pens – blue or black.
  • Scientific calculator
  • Use the toilet before the first test session. Interruptions may affect test results.
  • Relax and do your best. Read the instructions and use every minute to maximum effect.
  • The tests are held in 2 sessions with a 20 minute recess break between each session.

Information about Test Day

The whole of Year 8 will be sitting the Allwell test.  The times and locations of the tests will be provided closer to the date.
