Format and reporting

The Languages Assessments offer separate online, multiple-choice format tests in listening and reading, in increasing levels of difficulty in each language.

The assessments offer teachers instant raw test scores, with extended reporting functionality implemented in 2018.

Please note: While the Languages Assessments have been developed using the Victorian Curriculum: Languages, they are only applicable to the reading and listening components of the curriculum, and as such are not suitable to be used as the sole means to ascertain students learning progress against the Victorian Curriculum: Languages Achievement Standards.

The Languages Assessments are available at no cost to all Victorian schools and community languages providers.


To access the Languages Assessments, Victorian schools need to register through ACER’s Online Assessment and Reporting System.

Once registered, schools will receive a confirmation email and further instructions from ACER on how to proceed. Please note: at peak times, this process may take up to five working days from registration to accessing the assessments.
