LANTITE update

Andrea ChesterUncategorized1 Comment

Some headlines from DET regarding the Literacy and Numeracy Test for Initial Teacher Education (LANTITE):
  • New accreditation standards require students to possess personal literacy and numeracy levels broadly equivalent to top 30% of adult population.
  • The test standards are revised to ensure that graduates have skills in the top 30%
  • LANTITE test has been in operation since July 1, 2016
  • The test is administered by the ACER
  • The test website contains key information for students:
  • Students can sit the test three times for each test component
  • Transferring across universities will not be sufficient grounds to increase the test resit allowance
  • A Dean of Education can request a 4th test attempt by making a case
  • A 5th attempt can only be given by an independent evaluation committee
  • No empirical evidence that certain groups of students may find LANTITE more difficult than others
