Hi all,

Wow - where did this year go? Can't believe that we in the fourth term. I imagine that we are all in the thick of report writing. We've just run some asttle tests using the online portal. Generally, I think this is helpful (particularly for teacher workload) but wondered what people thought of doing the reading online. I think it would be really helpful to be able to print off a set of the texts contained in the test so that the kids don't have to scroll up and down (especially on a slightly smaller screen like a Chromebook). What have other people's experiences been with e-asttle?

    Hi susie,

    I used to use easttle all the time for mths and reading online and it was fantastic. We had technical issues this year where the test won't load, or kicks the kids out half way through and then they cant log back in. Its been a nightmare. Im not sure if the fault is at our end or with easttle. I gave the kids a paper reading easttle and it went a lot smoother. It's more work for you with marking and loading scores but I found it more reliable to administer and complete the test and less time consuming to for all the kids complete.
