The test is comprised of three separate test instruments, one for each of the priority areas of literacy, numeracy (each 90 minute tests) and science (a 60 minute test). The test instrument is computer based with items in a range of formats that can be marked electronically. Testing will be conducted in designated test centres to ensure appropriate levels of test security and administration.
Pre-registration test items have been developed around three constructs which provide a representation of what teachers need to know in order to effectively teach the curriculum for literacy, numeracy and science.
