The Reading assessment addresses the ACSF performance features:

  • Purpose
  • Complexity
  • Prediction and prior knowledge
  • Critical reading and text analysis
  • Text navigation
  • Comprehension strategies
  • Syntax and language patterns
  • Vocabulary

Reading tasks are based on a broad range of texts designed or chosen for their authenticity and relevance to the lives of adult students.

Reading questions are presented to students in a simulated online reading environment. A split screen is used to allow a dedicated area for each text, with questions located in a separate screen opposite.

Students are able to scroll through longer texts, where necessary, and still retain sight of the question they need to answer.

The following individual student report is available for CSPA Reading:
