Confirmation that online Snapshot assessments have an adaptive option

Kia ora koutou,

We have been engaging with a number of providers about the 2023 TEC LNAAT guidelines and the status of Snapshot assessments.

We can confirm that online Snapshot assessments that are created with "No Threshold" (under the Threshold option) are adaptive. They operate as a shorter adaptive assessment and are a viable option for both initial and progress assessment mahi. Use of the Snapshot assessment in either context is supported in the latest guidelines and many providers find the shorter adaptive assessment to be more engaging for their students.
