Religious Literacy Assessment

The Religious Literacy Assessment Program in the Diocese of Wollongong provides information about the way children process and express their religious knowledge.

This Assessment of Religious Literacy project is part of a larger collaborative initiative, Partners in Learning, which has been established between the Catholic Education Office, Wollongong and Australian Catholic University (ACU). Religious literacy refers to the way children use their literacy skills to communicate their understanding of the religious tradition to themselves, their peers, teachers and members of the wider faith community.

This assessment instrument involves all Year 4 students across the Diocese of Wollongong. The assessment consists of a Part A multiple choice and short answer paper, and a Part B extended task based on a unit of work. The tasks are developed around the Religious Literacy Framework of Knowing the Tradition, Working with the Tradition, Applying the Tradition and Valuing the Tradition, reflecting Stage 1 and Stage 2 outcomes of the RE Curriculum.
