Bishops Literacy Assessment

Students in Years 3, 5 and 7 complete the Bishops’ Religious Literacy Assessment. This is a curriculum based assessment which reflects and supports the progressive nature of the K-12 Religious Education Units.

It focuses on students’ ability to recall content about the Catholic religion and to assess students’ knowledge and understanding of Religious Education it does not measure students’ faith.

The intended purpose of the assessment is to provide individual schools with a snapshot of student performance in Religious Education. Comparisons between students performance are provided on the student and school reports.

Schools and students have the opportunity to compare students with their class peers and with other students across the state.
