The Literacy test comprises three focus areas: Reading, Writing and Language Conventions. Here you will find information on the Reading task. The Reading task provides students with a magazine containing a range of texts in different styles. Students read the texts and then answer related questions in a booklet. The reading task assesses comprehension skills including identifying main ideas, cause and effect, the meaning of unfamiliar words, as well as asking students to draw conclusions and make inferences.
