Syllabus

This unit requires students to successfully complete both components of the Literacy and Numeracy Test for Initial Teacher Education (LANTITE). It is a threshold component for all undergraduate programs of Initial Teacher Education at the University of Canberra. Students will achieve either an ungraded pass or a fail grade for this unit. Students will have access to preparatory/support materials to assist with engagement with the test; if students fail one or both components (Literacy and Numeracy), they will be required to complete targeted workshops focused on literacy and numeracy support, but also on test-taking strategies (i.e. deductive reasoning in multiple choice tests) before reattempting the test.

Learning Outcomes

After successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:

1. Demonstrate literacy and numeracy achievement equivalent to the top 30 per cent of the Australian adult population (see https://teacheredtest.acer.edu.au/about); and

2. Demonstrate the ability to apply test-taking strategies, including deductive reasoning, time management and following instructions.
