The reports locate a Learner's achievement on the adult learning progressions. They provide a solid starting point for further exploration to identify particular strengths and weaknesses.
This starting point also provides a benchmark which can be used when looking at whether change has occurred over time. The potential of the reports doesn't finish there however - the reports can also be used to look at patterns of responses across individual progressions.
It is always important not to make too much of answers to individual questions. Educators should probe further to confirm any patterns they identify when examining a report for an individual.
