Reading and thoughts after Premier's Reading Challenge 2013

The 2013 Premier's Reading Challenge has now closed.

'' Students who successfully completed the challenge will receive a Certificate of Achievement signed by the Premier.Certificates will be mailed out to schools and individual readers at the end of October.Students who participated in the challenge but didn't meet the requirements can download a Certificate of Participation from the Premier's Reading Challenge website at the end of October.If you missed the deadline to enter and finalise your Premier's Reading Challenge data please email Premier's Reading Challenge program manager or phone (07) 3239 0917.

Formal testing and assessment is incredibly expensive and out of reach for most, and so parents are left floundering.

There are a number of assessment tools (used by professionals and schools in Australia) that you can use to help identify reading gaps. If you would like a copy of these please email me and I'll send them to you. I'm sure you'll use them wisely ;)
