Effective use of grammar and punctuation enables students to communicate meaning. Good grammar and punctuation knowledge and skills are the building blocks of language, and allow students to put words together in meaningful ways. Having this knowledge consequently supports success across all subjects.
Grammar & Punctuation is a computer-adaptive assessment for students in Years 3 to 6. It provides rich diagnostic information of students’ grammar and punctuation knowledge and skills to enable better targeted teaching.

UNSW Global Assessments aims to help all students reach their full potential. By partnering with educators to provide evidence-based, quality assessment data, we provide valuable feedback about student learning and areas of potential improvement.
Good grammar and punctuation skills establish a foundation for effective communication. In a digital age that encourages a variety of communication styles, and in a crowded curriculum, finding effective teaching models is more important and more challenging than ever.
Our team of assessment experts has developed Grammar and Punctuation, the first of our new Checkpoint Assessments, to provide the information and insights all teachers need to help establish and maintain the literacy foundations all students deserve.
