Skills for Life Diagnostic Assessment Materials

Skills for Life diagnostic assessment materials

About

These Skills for Life diagnostic assessment materials for literacy, language and numeracy were developed nationally in 2002.

Also included with the Skills for Life Diagnostic Assessment Materials were resources for assessing learners on the pre-entry curriculum framework, Milestones 4-8, and materials for assessing the need for support for dyslexia.

Diagnostic assessment helps to identify specific learning strengths and needs, and usually follows an initial assessment at the beginning of a learning programme, where there is an indication of the need for further, more detailed assessment. It is related to specific skills needed for tasks, and the diagnostic information is used to inform the learner’s Individual Learning Plan. It is┬árecommended that diagnostic assessment is conducted by specialist teachers of literacy, language or numeracy.

You can access the legacy Skills for Life diagnostic assessment materials from the link below (note: the ICT version of the diagnostic assessment is no longer available).
