Please note that AITSL will be launching a new website on 25 July 2017 with enhanced functionality to help you easily find and access our content.

As a result, the Teacher Toolkit will be decommissioned shortly after the new website is live.

The Teacher Toolkit will continue to remain accessible online for a couple of weeks after the launch of the new website, but any links to resources within the Teacher Toolkit will no longer work.

All the Toolkit content will be available on the new AITSL website at and we encourage you to add our new site to your bookmarks.

If you encounter an issue or can’t find content you’re looking for in the new website, please contact us.

Teacher Self-Assessment Tool

View Resource


Teacher SATThe Teachers Self-Assessment Tool (Teacher SAT) is an online questionnaire enabling teachers at all Career Stages, in a range of contexts, to reflect upon their practice in accordance with the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers.


The Teacher SAT lends itself to several distinct purposes for teachers:


  • Familiarisation with the Standards - The Teacher SAT assists teachers to locate their practice in the Standards.
  • Self-reflection - The Teacher SAT report provides a detailed picture of a teacher's practice aligned to Career Stages and Standards Focus Areas.
  • Performance and development - The Teacher SAT highlights areas for individual teachers' development.
  • Professional learning planning - The information provided by the Teacher SAT report offers stimulus for choosing professional learning.
  • Preparation for national certification - The Teacher SAT provides teachers with feedback about where their practice aligns with the Highly Accomplished or Lead Career Stages.
  • Group functionality - The group report provides an overview of the cohort's skills, aligned to the Standards. The information can be used to inform whole school, department or subject area performance and development planning and goal setting.
