The CSPA was developed by ACER staff with high level expertise in the design of online post-school assessments in language, literacy and numeracy. All items were trialled with adult candidates and proven to be psychometrically valid and reliable.

The CSPA was developed based on the ACSF with key assessment constructs being identified in conjunction with clients to ensure the relevance of assessment content and an appropriate spread of item difficulty.
