Importance of using Baseline Assessments

Baseline assessment is an essential tool for evaluating the language proficiency of learners in the Foundation Phase (Grades R-3) for English Home Language. This assessment provides a starting point for the teaching and learning process, and enables teachers to identify areas where learners may require additional support. It helps to determine the learners’ level of understanding of the language, their vocabulary, and their comprehension skills. This assessment is crucial for identifying learners who may need additional support and for planning effective interventions to address any gaps in their language skills. By identifying learners’ strengths and weaknesses early on, teachers can tailor their instruction to meet the specific needs of each learner and provide the necessary support to help them progress. Therefore, baseline assessment is an important tool for ensuring that learners receive the support they need to succeed in English Home Language at the Foundation Phase.
