About the bksb Diagnostic Assessment for Functional Skills

The bksb Functional Skills Diagnostic Assessment (English and maths) tracks the Functional Skills Standards from Entry Level 1 to Level 2. We also provide assessments that assess generic English and maths at Level 3. When a learner completes the Diagnostic Assessments in English and maths, it provides them with a percentage score and produces an interactive Individual Learning Plan (ILP) which highlights their skill gaps and directs the learner to the appropriate resources they need to use in order to fill those skill gaps.


Fully interactive and self-marking

The Diagnostic Assessment (English and maths) is fully interactive and self-marking and tracks the Functional Skills Standards from Entry Level 1 to Level 2.

Produces an interactive ‘Individual Learning Plan’

When a learner completes the Diagnostic Assessment in English and maths, an interactive Individual Learning Plan (ILP) is generated with direct links to learning resources that the learner can access to improve in the areas where they are weak. Our software also allows the results of a learner’s Diagnostic Assessment to be printed, which enables the learner to easily be able to seek out additional support from tutors and other sources.

In-depth tracking and reporting

The Diagnostic Assessment provides valuable tracking and reports for tutors and managers. This data is extremely insightful and assists greatly with lesson planning, learner management and for inspection evidence. Download our pdf to find out more about tracking and reporting.

Our Diagnostic Assessments fully support the Functional Skills Standards. They are also suitable for learners aged 14-19 and NEETs who wish to improve their Essential skills and Core skills, as well as those who want to continue their Professional Development (CPD).
