Optional Literacy and Numeracy Tests:
Students intending to leave school can take optional online literacy and numeracy tests. The tests are for students who intend to leave school before completing their HSC. They are designed to show an overview of a student's level of achievement in these areas.
These tests are conducted twice per year and students intending to sit for these when leaving school must advise the school so they can be registered.
Content of the tests:
- The tests focus on the literacy and numeracy skills required by school leavers for employment and further education.
- There is one test for literacy and one test for numeracy.
- Each test consists of 60 multiple-choice questions and is 60 minutes long.
- The test results are reported separately from the RoSA and are not a requirement for award of the credential.
