LANTITE stands for the Literacy and Numeracy Test for Initial Teacher Education (ITE) Students. It is designed to assess initial teacher education students’ personal literacy and numeracy skills to ensure teachers are well equipped to meet the demands of teaching. It is also hoped that the introduction of the LANTITE will assist higher education providers, teacher employers and the general public to have increased confidence in the skills of graduating teachers.

The LANTITE is a national requirement for graduation from all teacher education courses from 1 July 2016. Students are expected to have completed these tests (two components) and met the standard in order to graduate from their Curtin University ITE course.

To aid in your preparation for the numeracy component of LANTITE you may wish to attempt some or all of the following practice questions, which have been grouped according to topic:

Numeracy practice test

Once you have completed these practice questions, test your knowledge by attempting the following practice test. Note that this test is approximately half the length of the LANTITE numeracy test, so you should aim to complete it in 1 hour. There are 26 calculator available questions (some with multiple parts), followed by 6 calculator not available questions.

As in the real LANTITE numeracy test, you should try not to go back to the calculator available section of the quiz once you start on the calculator not available questions. This means you should at least have an attempt at every calculator available question first, as you won’t be able to ‘finish’ the test and review your results until you have entered something for each question.
