Self Assessment

This self-assessment activity is an opportunity for you to spend some time reflecting on your knowledge, skills and abilities as a literacy professional in LBS. We hope that it will help you:

  • appreciate the scope of the work you do,
  • take stock of your professional work,
  • value what you do well and recognize the expertise you have developed,
  • identify any important gaps in skills and knowledge that may exist,
  • start along a pathway to professional development and growth.

It takes time...

In order to get results that are as reliable as possible, it is important to gather sufficient data. This take a bit of time. You can expect to spend about 45 minutes on this assessment activity - but, fortunately, you don't have to do it all at once.

Why would I spend 45 minutes on a self-assessment activity?

To support your ongoing professional development, we would like to help you think about what it takes to be a successful, effective literacy practitioner, and, in a sense, hold up a mirror for you to see what you really think about your own skills and abilities.

As you know, there's a lot more to being a successful literacy practitioner than simply the ability to communicate with learners!

  • a certain level of professional knowledge is required;
  • there are certain necessary skills and abilities for program development and program delivery;
  • the ability to keep up with the administrative requirements of the job is important;
  • organizational and time-management skills as well as the ability to work well with other literacy professionals is essential.

This self-assessment exercise will show you what you think about your knowledge and skills in all these areas. As an added bonus, the tool will give you a list of courses that are available on this site that match your personal training priorities.
