National Literacy and Numeracy Test

From 2016 onwards, all initial teacher education students must pass the National Literacy and Numeracy Test before they can graduate. This is an Australian Government mandated requirement.

Students should take the Test as soon as possible to allow them time to sit it again if they fail.

The School of Education recommends taking the Test:

  • Undergraduate: Autumn Session, 2nd or 3rd year
  • Postgraduate: Spring Session, 1st year

(Note: This test was previously called the Literacy and Numeracy Test for Initial Teacher Education Students - LANTITE. Many places still refer to it by that name.)

Taking the Test

The Test runs during certain windows of time throughout the year.

Students must register to take the Test during one of these times.
