The Online Literacy and Numeracy Assessment is designed for secondary students to successfully meet the minimum standard of literacy and numeracy.

To successfully obtain a Western Australian Certificate of Education, minimum standards of literacy and numeracy must be achieved.

The assessment occurs each year in March and September for young people in Years 10, 11 and 12. Once participants have passed the minimum standard, they are no longer required to sit the assessment again. There are six opportunities to pass this assessment.
