I have found the BKSB to be engaging and supportive of the learning for a range of young people. I particularly like that it clearly shows strengths and areas for growth.

Eastern Fleurieu FLO program

Very good assessment tool for assessing LLN skills quickly.

TAFE NSW Illawarra

We believe that the BKSB tool is a good product that has helped us to identify the Foundation Skills levels of a great number of students in a very short amount of time.  We are also happy with the products ongoing improvement and the open acceptance of feedback in relation to the tool.


BKSB has been well received by students.  They enjoy the way information is presented.  I found many students will proactively engage, even outside of class time.

Great platform, easy to use.

Health Careers International

A great online resource for literacy support.

Selmar Institute of Education (Catalyst)

In the Commerce and Enterprise Portfolio we use BKSB to survey the English and Maths levels of our new VET students entering Certificate III & Certificate IV programs. We also encourage students to use the resources for their individual levels. It is a wonderful resource for lecturers and students.

North Metropolitan TAFE ( Perth) Commerce and Enterprise Portfolio

A great programme, particularly as it offers students the choice of working either on paper or using IT.  We also use it as a diagnostic tool to assess which levels students are in English and Maths when they enter our programme.
