Literacy and Numeracy Test for Initial Teacher Education - FAQ

What is the LANTITE?

The Literacy and Numeracy Test for Initial Teacher Education (LANTITE) is designed to assess personal literacy and numeracy skills to ensure teachers are well equipped to meet the demands of teaching.

Information on the LANTITE dates, how to apply, costs and sample test questions are on the ACER website. Monash does not register students with ACER and we do not run the LANTITE. Registration, testing and results are administered by ACER.

Frequently asked questions are also provided by the Department of Education and Training.

What support does the faculty provide to students?

The Faculty of Education offers a Literacy and Numeracy Development Program to support students in preparing to sit (and re-sit) the LANTITE.

To prepare for the test, we recommend you enrol in the Literacy and Numeracy Development program moodle site to find details of resources and preparation workshops available to you.

Students with special requirements, or who need to re-sit the test, can contact the Literacy and Numeracy Development Team () for information about additional support.

Who should sit the test? (and more...)

Please note, the test requirements are different for students who commenced their initial teacher education course prior to 2017.
