Assess your academic literacy skills (SALNA)

The Swinburne Academic Literacy Needs Assessment (SALNA) is an online quiz for undergraduate and UniLink students at Swinburne.

It’s designed to ease your transition into tertiary education by introducing you to key aspects of university study and writing, such as:

  • interpreting assignments
  • developing arguments
  • structuring your work
  • referencing your work

Take the SALNA quiz to find out where your strengths are, and which academic literacy skills you could work on developing.

SALNA is a self-assessment tool and only you will see the results. Your tutors and lecturers cannot see your scores.

The quiz takes 15 to 20 minutes to complete.

Find out which study resources could help you

At the end of the quiz, you will get feedback on your academic and language skills.

You will also receive a list of helpful resources that you can use to build particular skills.

These resources could be specific study support services at Swinburne, or downloadable assignment-writing guides.
