Our Assessors and Assessment

We are fortunate to have two qualified assessors in Nelson.

Marg LeGros and Gill Knight are highly qualified NZCER C Level test users, with post-graduate qualifications and professional experience in both classroom and individual needs teaching.

They administer the Woodcock-Johnson III Tests of Cognitive Abilities and Achievement in a one-to-one setting to maximise confidentiality and minimise distractions.

Assessments cost $550.

Following the assessment, a comprehensive and independent report describes a student’s current learning profile and provides recommendations to parents and teachers.
The report pinpoints the specific individual strengths and/or weaknesses of the student and is the basis for any SLD teaching.

It also provides supporting evidence for school applications to NZQA on behalf of a student for NCEA special assessment conditions, such as for a Reader -Writer.
