Framework Pre Level 1 Supplement – Part A and B

The Pre Level 1 supplement to the framework describes performance in the five core skills of learning, reading, writing, oral communication and numeracy.

The Pre Level 1 Supplement has been updated to include two stages - A and B. The inclusion of these stages into the Performance Features of each Focus Area enables more accurate and progressive assessment of performance in each of the core skills at the Pre Level 1 indicator than the previous version.
