These validated ACSF assessment tasks are designed to be used by assessors who are experienced LLN practitioners with a sound working knowledge of the ACSF. Workplace trainers who are not experienced LLN practitioners may use the tasks, but should seek advice about their judgements from an experienced practitioner. Before using these resources, please read through the ACSF assessment task user guide and review the copyright and acknowledgement information.

This bank of assessment tasks offers assessors a range of tasks that have been validated by both ACSF and industry experts. The tasks are also regularly moderated by experienced assessors.

The tasks cover the five skills of Learning, Reading, Writing, Oral communication and Numeracy, at pre-level 1 through to level 4. They can be accessed by selecting links in the table below. Each task includes:

  • a summary of the ACSF skills covered
    notes about content coverage and contextualisation
  • instructions for the assessor
  • a mapping of the ACSF skill indicator and domains of communication covered in the task.

Please refer to our list of Frequently Asked Questions, or contact us by email if you have any other queries. We have also put together a list of useful videos available on the web.
