Grade 4 Literacy and Numeracy Tests – The Literacy and Numeracy tests are administered to students at the end of grade 4. Both tests are designed to identify students’ levels of mastery in basic mathematics skills and basic reading and writing skills. The information gained from these instruments is intended to be used to guide the development and implementation of appropriate enrichment and recovery programmes for the students who sat the tests. These students would now be entering grade five with the expectation that by the end of grade six, each student moving on to high school would have attained the required levels of mastery in both areas. They therefore should be in a position of vantage to access grade seven learning.
