  86. 86. LLN Assessment - BKSB
  87. 87. BKSB •BKSB is an online intuitive assessment tool for language, literacy and numeracy (LLN). The Australian Government’s long term strategy is to not only educate but also increase levels of all Australians in these three vital areas of learning and as such are now placing a greater emphasis on them. •It is a government requirement that all students undertake some form of LLN assessment prior to commencing their course. This is meant as a guide for both the learner and trainer as it will highlight the learners strengths and weaknesses. This also gives the trainer valuable information on where the learner may need extra assistance with their course. •There are two tests which must be undertaken, one for Maths and one for English and at the end of each test you will be given a score ranging from 1 to 5. •BKSB also has another section for those learners who may wish to improve their Maths and English levels over the length of the course. Please ask your trainer if you would like to undertake this and they can discuss this further with you.
