Academic literacy: Test your competence

Grade 12 learners now have to prove that they are prepared for the demands of academic language before they begin studying at university. In order to gauge their level of preparedness in this respect, universities often require them to write tests of academic literacy. Most of the time, prospective students are asked to take such tests before they gain entry to tertiary institutions.

What do these tests of academic literacy look like? Why do these institutions now require prospective students to write them before granting access to tertiary study? Why is there so much concern with academic literacy? What is academic literacy?  This book, edited by Professors Albert Weideman and Tobie van Dyk,  helps to answer these questions. Specifically, it will assist Grade 11 and 12 learners to familiarise themselves with tests of the ability to use academic language. It gives numerous examples of the kinds of questions that they might be required to answer.

Both the Afrikaans and English versions have been written by some of South Africa’s most experienced designers of language tests. To learn more about this book, visit the relevant LCaT page.
