Football Story

  • The Football Story is a culturally appropriate assessment of oral storytelling and understanding for Aboriginal Students.
    • Research has found that Aboriginal students produce longer and more detailed narratives and score better on comprehension questions when using the Football Story as compared to a less culturally appropriate assessment like the Kite Story.
  • Tool developed for sampling and profiling oral language skills (at Tier 1, 2 or 3) to identify needs and track development but not for comparing to norms or benchmarks.
  • Useful for K –Year 3 students
  • It is a parallel story to the Kite Story – part of Time for Talk, a DOE resource
  • Approx 10mins administration
