    Default Anyone done the TAFE literacy assessment?

    I am applying to study at tafe next semester and I have to do a literacy assessment in 2 weeks. I'm nervous! I have no idea what to study lol. Has anyone done it recently? Was it harder or easier then you expected?

    Relax The literacy assessment results indicate to your teachers your literacy level - enabling them to support you during your time at TAFE. If needed, you may be referred onto Study Support to assist you with written work (this is voluntary)

    If you want to prepare, click on this link here (don't worry if you're not studying nursing, the literacy and numeracy tests are generic)

    Just breathe and good luck with your studies x

    Do you know if that is similar to the NSW one? It seems like it's a Victorian one?

    And thank you again

    As TAFE qualifications are recognised nationally, my opinion is a VIC literacy test would be the same as a NSW literacy test.

    I did a literacy test a few weeks ago in QLD. I was really nervous too. My test was different to the example posted. I had to read a paragraph and then answer questions about the paragraph. At first they were very easy. And then progressively got harder.

    For example:
    Jack and Jill went up the hill to fetch a pail of water. Jack fell down and broke his crown and Jill went tumbling after.................(etc- on the test will be longer then this)

    1) Who fell down?
    A) Jack
    B) The pail
    C) Jill
    D) No one

    2) What did Jack and Jill fetch?
    A) Water
    B) Grass
    C) A pail
    D) A dog

    etc etc etc
