The NSW Department of Education report on the 2022 rollout of the program used 7766 students’ performance in the check-in assessment, a standardised literacy and numeracy test, between 2021 and the following year to chart their progress. Their improvement over the year was compared with academically similar students who were not tutored, with the report saying once marks were standardised, “the program’s effect was minimal”. It said 95 per cent of principals and 81 per cent of classroom teachers had a positive perception of the program. “[Given] the overwhelming perception by school staff that the program has had a positive effect on student confidence, motivation and attitude toward schools, there may be un-monetised long-term benefits,” it said.
