In a nutshell.
“The ACSF describes each of the five core skills across three interactive dimensions:
− Five levels of performance ranging from 1 (low level performance) to 5 (high level performance)
− Four performance variables that may influence a person’s performance at any time:
- text complexity
- task complexity.
− Three Domains of Communication, broad contexts within which the core skill may be used:
- personal and community
- workplace and employment
- education and training.”
