Maximising Test Results - NAPLAN*-style Literacy: Quick Skills Tests, Year 7 Language Conventions contains 47 targeted quick skills tests (or work sheets) to help prepare students for the Language Conventions component of the national literacy test program. Each work sheet targets a particular skill regarding spelling, punctuation and using language; reminders of spelling and grammar rules, with examples and exceptions to rules, are also included. Each work sheet contains between 5 and 40 questions, providing students with ample opportunity to practise and master each skill.
