Being religiously literate requires children leaving a Catholic primary school to be able to communicate with and be at home in Catholic society and religion in general. Thus assessment of religious literacy will focus on students’ knowledge and understanding of the key concepts that are being addressed by the Religious Education program and the children’s ability to communicate with their religious tradition.
The Religious Literacy Assessment is completed in Year 4 and 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 RE.
- Part B Extended Task Scenario with the focus derived from Unit 4.5 Mary Mother of God, First Among The Saints.
