The Australian Government Department of Education and Training (the department) advises that the Foundation Skills Assessment Tool (FSAT) will close down from 1 July 2018.

The tool will remain completely functional for organisations already registered to use FSAT (and their students to sit assessments) until 30 June 2018 but, effectively immediately, no new registrations will be accepted. The department is working with the Australian Council for Educational Research (ACER) to transition FSAT to closure.

For information on the closure generally and what it specifically means for organisations already registered to use FSAT, please refer to the department’s website.

The ACER FSAT Helpdesk will continue to provide technical assistance and support for using FSAT through to 30 June 2018. Further information is available on the department’s website.
