Abstract

In this paper, we discuss pre-service teachers’ experiences with the Australian Council for Educational Research’s Literacy and Numeracy Test for Initial Teacher Education Students (LANTITE). We report on findings from a questionnaire completed by 120 pre-service teachers at a prestigious Australian university about their experiences preparing for and completing the numeracy portion of the LANTITE. Specifically, we address the ways that the participants prepared for the test, their experiences with the test, and their impressions of the test and their results. Our findings provide insight about students’ experiences and thus provide useful information to universities who offer teacher preparation programs.
