title religious literacy assessment

The Religious Literacy Assessment Program is part of the Partners in Learning initiative begun in 2000 between the Australian Catholic University and the Catholic Education Office, Wollongong.

Its goal is a practical assessment and reporting system at a diocesan level that contributes to gathering information about the process of learning in Religious Education.

Its aim is to document and report on students’ learning in RE. The Religious Literacy assessment is conducted across the Diocese during Term 3 for all students in Year 4.

  It is divided into two sections:

  • Part A - Multiple choice / restricted answer and short answer / performance questions reflecting Stage 1 and Stage 2 outcomes and content in Religious Education.
  • Part B - Extended Task - Scenario with the focus derived from Unit 4.5 Mary, the Mother of God First Among the Saints
