Foundation Skills Assessment Tool Released

The Department of Education and Training has released an interactive online Foundation Skills Assessment Tool (FSAT) to identify and measure an individual’s foundation skill levels (English language, literacy and numeracy skills as well as employability skills).
The registration manual provides information on how to register your organisation for an FSAT account. It should be read prior to proceeding with registration.

FSAT can be accessed via the following link: https://www.fsat.education.gov.au/

On first accessing this page, relevant organisations will be asked to complete a registration process. As part of this process, they will be asked to agree to the applicable Terms and Conditions. Once registration is confirmed, organisations will be able to generate log-ins for test candidates. They will also be able to access a range of user support materials.

On first logging in, test users will be asked to create a new password, complete demographic information, declare that they will complete all tests without external assistance, accept privacy and copyright conditions and consent to the sharing of certain personal information in clearly-defined circumstances.
