Literacy and Numeracy Test for Initial Education Students
Numeracy Practice Test
Test information and instructions
While this is a practice test, the instructions below are based on those for the
actual online test.
You are advised to time yourself to provide the best simulation of the actual
test.
Following the Tutorial, there are 65 questions in the numeracy test. The numeracy
test has two sections:
Section 1: 52 questions. In the actual test, an online calculator is available.
You may use your personal calculator for this section. Allow 90-95 minutes.
Section 2: 13 questions. A calculator is not permitted for this section. Allow
25-30 minutes.
You do not have to use the full 120 minutes. If you have finished the numeracy test
earlier than the scheduled time, please indicate this to your test supervisor who
will ensure you have completed all testing procedures.
After you have logged out, you will not be able to return to the test. You are allowed
to use a pen and scrap paper. No other items are permitted in the test room unless
you have been granted reasonable adjustments.
You are now going to do a short tutorial and some numeracy practice questions to
help you navigate the test. You can click on ‘Start test’ to continue.

Infection Model
This is a simple example of how people in a community might become infected with
a disease.
One infectious disease has a reproduction rate of 20%.
For example, if a person with the disease encounters 10 people while infected, then
2 people (20% of 10 people) are likely to be infected.
However, with a vaccination rate of 50%, where 50% of the 10 people are vaccinated
against the disease, then only 1 person (20% of 5 people) is likely to be infected.
