To see for yourself what your level might be, choose one of the levels below and click on it. You will see a checklist of the four skills listed with examples of the tasks that might be done at each level.
A suggestion for completing your self-assessment:
Decide what you think your level is and complete the checklist
If you have only a few checkmarks ü go back one level
o Continue to go back until you can almost complete the checklist
If you have almost everything checked off, go to th enext level up and complete that list
o Continue to go up until you have a checklist that is missing some information
Estimate what you think your level is.
