Grade Four Literacy Test

Examining the ‘Discourse’ behind the Grade Four Literacy Test: Evidence from Two Primary Schools in Jamaica

SKU: JEDIC 13-1-6

This paper forms part of a larger research study which examined the role of discourse in the changes made to the administration of the Grade Four Literacy Test (G4LT) in 2009 in Jamaica. The literacy test was modified from a classroom-based assessment to a high-stakes nationwide examination. While the broader study focused on changes at the policy level, and how the test changes were discussed in the print media, this paper will focus on how the modifications to the G4LT influenced changes at the level of the school.
