Literacy and Numeracy Test for Initial Teacher Education

  • The Literacy and Numeracy Test for Initial Teacher Education (LANTITE) is designed to assess personal literacy and numeracy skills to ensure aspiring teachers are well equipped to meet the demands of teaching.
  • All students (either undergraduate or postgraduate) enrolled in initial teacher education programs throughout Australia must pass the test prior to graduating.
  • You must register online with ACER (Australian Council for Educational Research) to sit the test at a test centre or by remote proctoring.
  • Please visit the ACER LANTITE website for all information, including current LANTITE test fees and payment information.
  • LANTITE is set by ACER.
  • There are four test windows in each calendar year.
  • Students complete the test in two parts - the Literacy test (two hours) and Numeracy test (two hours).
  • Please see the ACER LANTITE website for information on test centres, remote proctoring, your admission ticket, identification, permitted testing aids, misconduct and test results.
  • You have up to three opportunities to sit the test.
  • You only need to demonstrate once that you have met the standard for each test component.
  • Test results from all previous test windows are transferrable and do not expire.
  • If you sat the test and met the standard for one test component, you only need to register for and re-sit the test component that you were unsuccessful in.
  • The ACER LANTITE website provides all the information you’ll need for the LANTITE test, as well as answers to additional questions you may have via their Frequently Asked Questions page.
