8-bit is an intervention program for targeted Year 8 students that runs during tutorial time. Students have been selected based on their Year 7 NAPLAN results from 2018.
The first group that will be involved in the program have shown low growth in both the literacy and numeracy sections of the test. These students will attend 8-bit classes in smaller groups of 3-4 on different modules that focus on a specific skill or strategy.
These modules range from understanding different test taking strategies, to how to break down questions using the Comprehension Strategies, to understanding how to break down unknown vocabulary in a test situation.
