National Literacy and Numeracy Test

All initial teacher education students must pass the National Literacy and Numeracy Test before they can commence their final professional experience. This is a NSW 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 is often called the LANTITE - Literacy and Numeracy Test for Initial Teacher Education Students. Many places 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.
