    plan.
Assessment criteria 

For the Adult Certificate in Literacy course, assessment tasks are
dependent upon the level of course you are accessing. For entry level,
assessment is through end assignments in reading and writing. A speaking and
listening assessment will be in the form of an informal and formal
discussion. 

For level 1, assessments are by sitting externally set
tests in reading and writing. There are two tasks in the speaking and listening
units.
