Step 1: Register for the PLD tracking sheets using this link: https://pld-literacy.org/plds-tracking-sheets/
You will receive instructions on the first tab READ THIS FIRST, which outlines how to set up the sheets.

Step 2: Teachers will need to complete the placement tests for whichever term you wish to commence.
The Early Years Screening & Tracking Manual is here: https://pld-literacy.org/product/early-years-screening-tracking-manual/
The Foundation Screening & Tracking Manual is here: https://pld-literacy.org/product/foundation-screening-tracking-manual/
The Year 1 & 2 Screening & Tracking Manual is here: https://pld-literacy.org/product/year-1-2-screening-tracking-manual/
TheYear 3, 4, 5 & 6 Screening & Tracking Manual is here: https://pld-literacy.org/product/year-3-4-5-6-screening-tracking-manual/

Step 3: Teachers need to not only enter the percentage scores from the placement tests, but they need to establish an implementation plan and three targeted teaching groups for their class.

Here is a demonstration video for Year 1 & 2: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dl4LNyfLYyA&t=26s

* Step 4: Many teachers express that they are not strong with EXCEL/Google Sheets. Below is a short training video

Early Years and Foundation are to implement the first two functions.
Year 1-6 are to implement all three functions.

Step 5: Once established, PLD can offer support with the tracking sheets. Below is a form that needs to be completed when requesting support with the tracking sheets:

Step 6: It is likely that if the school has been implementing PLD for some time, that a training update is required. You may wish to consider the online courses or a short staff meeting session.

Kind regards,
The staff at PLD.
