Assessment of student competencies

The Assessment of Student Competencies (ASC) is a Northern Territory developed on-entry screening tool.

The ASC consists of 47 competencies. It is a school based decision whether Transition students are assessed. ASC resources are also available to non-government schools.

It is recommended that Transition students are assessed using the ASC early in Term 1.

ASC data against the forty-seven competencies can be entered in the Student Achievement Information System (SAIS).

Additional support materials are available in the early primary teachers' toolkit on eLearn.
