Format and reporting

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

Initially, the assessments will offer teachers raw test scores, with additional assessments in Chinese, Modern Greek and Spanish, and extended reporting functionality, available in February 2018

Please note: While the Language 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 Language Assessments are available at no cost to all Victorian schools, including community language schools.

Registration

To access the Language 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.
