Welcome to the e-asTTle Help Site

Tēnā koutou katoa

We have made a small change to the e-asTTle item bank.

What changes were made?

The “Fa’asamoa” reading passage – which appeared in some Level 4-6 Reading tests – has been retired. Most tests won’t be impacted by this change. However, if you re-use an old test with this passage, you will see an error such as: ‘This test contains one or more questions that are no longer in the e-asTTle item bank. This test cannot be reassigned’. In this scenario, we recommend using Create Similar Test to make a replacement test to use going forward. Any student scores from tests with the “Fa’asamoa” reading passage will remain unchanged.

For help or more information

If you have any questions, please call the Education Service Desk on 0800 422 599.
