The English Online Interview is an online tool for assessing the english skills of students from Foundation to Level 2. It assesses students across the three modes of English in the Victorian Curriculum F-10 – Reading, Writing and Speaking and Listening.

The interview is one-to-one between a teacher and student, using texts and downloadable resources. Teachers record each student’s responses directly onto the online system. This data is used to generate reports that provide an overview of student achievement and diagnostic information to inform program planning and resource allocation.

The interview can be accessed via: Insight Assessment Platform (Insight)
