Education Minister Hekia Parata has welcomed the release of an online guide, Planning an inclusive learning environment to help schools plan new builds and building modifications that meet the needs of all students.

“This is a very useful and comprehensive resource. It takes schools through all the components they need to think about when planning a new learning environment,” says Ms Parata.

“New Zealand is diverse and every child has different learning needs. Each one of them deserves to feel included and valued at school.

Getting the best e-asTTle experience during the current peak period

1/11/2016

As November is the peak period of use for e-asTTle, we would like to advise you how to get the best experience for your students. 

In the days before your students actually sit the test:

  • Ensure all your students are loaded into e-asTTle
  • Do not load .ast files between 9:00am–3:00pm
  • Prepare early by creating and assign testing before the date required
  • Print off student logins the day before testing

On the day of testing:

  •  Consider testing students in the afternoon. The number of students sitting tests tends to be lower in the afternoon.  
  •  If you or your students have an issue, in the first instance clear your browser history, then click on link for e-asTTle FAQ's or e-asTTle Help
