Literacy and Numeracy Test for Initial Teacher Education Students

The Literacy and Numeracy Test for Initial Teacher Education Students (the test) is a single national instrument designed to demonstrate that graduates of Initial Teacher Education programs have personal levels of literacy and numeracy within the top 30 percent of the population.

The test will be available for students enrolled in all Australian accredited Initial Teacher Education programs from 16 May 2016. Australian Ministers of Education expect students to complete the test prior to graduation.

Students are encouraged to sit and meet the standard of the test for the following reasons:

  • to promote public confidence in graduate teachers – the community expects graduating teachers to have high levels of personal levels of literacy and numeracy
  • to enhance their capacity to be registered as teachers throughout Australia
  • to enhance their employment opportunities both nationally and internationally.

For further information about the test contact the institution at which you are currently studying.
