High standards of literacy and numeracy are important to ensure that teacher education students have the requisite skills that are essential for carrying out the intellectual demands of teaching. Within accreditation requirements, pre-service teachers must meet a set minimum standard of literacy and numeracy competence. To assist you to meet the requirements for literacy and numeracy competence, this task focuses on supporting your personal literacy and numeracy competence.
You will be assessed on your personal competence through 12 quizzes that will consist of multiple choice or one word/short answers.
There will be 10 questions in each Quiz. (12 quizzes x 10 questions per quiz = 120 questions, aggregated to become a mark out of 40% for this task).
There will be a literacy and a numeracy test each week from Week 3 – 9 linking to Topic 2 - 8 as indicated below:
Quiz 1a & b will be in Week 3 and will link to Topic 2
Quiz 2a & b will be in Week 4 and will link to Topic 3
Quiz 3a & b will be in Week 5 and will link to Topic 4
Quiz 4a & b will be in Week 6 and will link to Topic 5
Quiz 5a & b will be in Week 7 and will link to Topic 6
Quiz 6a & b will be in Week 8 and will link to Topic 7
You must receive a pass standard (minimum mark of 20/40) to be eligible to pass this task.
The tests will be located within the Assessment Block on the left hand side of the front page of the Moodle site for this unit and will be released each week from Week 3.
Each test will be timed and must be completed within that timeframe.
Each test will be open only for the week that test is set with each test being open from 12.00am Monday - 11.59pm Sunday of that week.
You are eligible for one attempt only for each quiz. If you do not attempt a quiz, a mark of 0 will be recorded for that attempt.
