It’s worth noting that pre-service teachers may have access to a free test in 2015 (see locations below). If you need more information visit http://studentsfirst.gov.au/teacher-quality and http://teacheredtest.acer.edu.au/ and you can also email LiteracyandNumeracyTest@education.gov.au
Here’s the official word from the Dept along with details of accessing the free test in 2015:
Dear Pre-Service Teachers,
Recently the Australian Government announced the introduction of a Literacy and Numeracy Test for Initial Teacher Education Students (the Test) which will be available for up to 5000 students in 2015. From 1 July 2016 the Test will be available for all pre-service teachers. While the Test is voluntary in 2015, in future years it will become a requirement for all pre-service teachers.
The Test is designed to assess aspects of your personal literacy and numeracy which can be assessed online through a combination of multiple choice and constructed response questions. Having all pre-service teachers pass this test will provide assurance to employers and the general public that early career teachers have high level literacy and numeracy skills.
In August and September of this year, the Australian Government is conducting initial implementation of the Test and is inviting up to 5000 pre-service teachers to take part. Sitting the Test this year will give you the opportunity to assess your own literacy and numeracy skills against a national Test. It will also allow you to demonstrate to employers and the public that you have the high level of personal literacy and numeracy skills expected of teachers.
The Australian Government is covering the costs of participating in the Test for 2015 only.
Locations in 2015 are limited, and only pre-service teachers who are able to travel to one of the Testing centres during one of the Testing windows will be able to participate. Test centres will operate in:
From next year the Test will be available to all pre-service teachers and will cater for a larger number of locations. Arrangements will be made for those needing special consideration or those who study by distance education.
For further information and to register to participate in the 2015 delivery of the Test, please check the Test Administrator’s website of teacheredtest.acer.edu.au. As the Test is being administered by an independent organisation and not through your university, if you have any concerns regarding the Test you should contact the Test administrator directly.
If you would like further information regarding the Test, please visit the Australian Government website of studentsfirst.gov.au/teacher-quality.
