About diagnostic Assessments

The bksb Literacy and Numeracy Diagnostic Assessment maps the ACSF standards from Pre Level 1 to Level 5. We also provide assessments to measure literacy and numeracy at Level 3. Once the learner has competed the diagnostic assessment, it provides them with a percentage score and produces an interactive Individual Learning Plan (ILP) which highlights any skills gaps, and directs the learner to the appropriate resources they need to use in order to fill those skills gaps.

Fully interactive and self-marking

The Diagnostic Assessment is fully interactive and self-marking and tracks the ACSF standards from Pre Level 1 to Level 5.

Produces an interactive 'Individual Learning Plan' (ILP)

Once a learner has completed the Diagnostic Assessment, an interactive Individual Learning Plan (ILP) is generated with direct links to Learning Resources that the learner can access in order to improve in the areas where there are skills gaps. The bksb software also allows the results of a learner's Diagnostic Assessment to be printed, which enables easy access to additional learner support from tutors and other sources.

In-depth tracking and reporting

The Diagnostic Assessment provides a valuable tracking and reporting functionality for tutors and managers. This is incredibly powerful in lesson planning, learner management, and for inspection evidence. Download our pdf and find out more about tracking and reporting.
