ESTA-L has been rolled out to independent schools participating in the Phase 2 NSW Literacy and Numeracy Action Plan and in the AISNSW Early Literacy Project. Further feedback from these schools will assist AISNSW to refine the app during 2018. From 2019, schools will be able to access ESTA-L as one component of the Early Literacy Project.
ESTA-L is a practical tool created to assist teachers determine the acquisition of essential phonological awareness and phonics skills critical for students’ literacy learning in the early years from Kindergarten to Year 2.
Produced by the AISNSW Student Services team, the ESTA-L tool provides a seamless, paper-free, time-saving technology that quickly assesses and instantly tracks individual student and whole class performance.
The app is quick and simple to use, requiring only a phone or tablet. Individual student, whole class or whole school data can easily be manipulated using the specially designed portal to inform classroom instruction and monitor student progress.
