of Labour and Administrative Services, a fuller study was undertaken looking at all destinations determined in 1989,1990 and 1991 to assist in the formulation of effective strategies to better serve the needs of Northern Territory youth. EVALUATION A major evaluation of moderation procedures for English and Mathematics in Years 10 and 11 was carried out during 1990 and 1991, involving observations of moderators and assistant moderators and the administration of questionnaires to school administrators, teachers and students. Data from over 650 questionnaires were analysed and comparative information was obtained on moderation approaches employed in other States and Territories. A report on the evaluation was presented to the Board of Studies in September. A survey was made of the types of external assessment currently used in each State and Territory and the collated information was printed as an occasional paper. A requirement of the Early Childhood Screening and Assessment Package introduced in urban primary schools in 1988was that individual schools should develop a policy on screening and assessment for preschool to Year 3. In 1991, schools were surveyed and received an interim report in September. In most Darwin, Alice Springs, Tennant Creek and Katherine primary schools, discussions were held with teachers and early childhood co-ordinators and samples of screening and assessment techniques were collected, along with recording and reporting devices currently in use. At the end of the year, a short questionnaire was administered to obtain information on levels of achievement of Year 3 students and the types of assessment used by teachers and work began on determining what system- wide data on student achievement could be obtained through the package. 51
