Best Start Kindergarten Assessment

The Best Start Kindergarten Assessment (BSKA) is a literacy and numeracy assessment conducted for all Kindergarten students in their first five weeks of school.

BSKA identifies students’ literacy and numeracy skills on entry to Kindergarten and is mapped to the National Literacy and Numeracy Learning Progressions.

The assessment is conducted online using the BSKA online assessment tool. Assessment feedback will inform teaching and learning programs that support students in the transition to school.
