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