Abstract

Mid last year the then Minister for Education, Christopher Pyne, announced that the Federal Government would fund a trial literacy and numeracy test for initial teacher education students. This test was one of the significant recommendations on how to improve teacher quality identified in the Report of the Teacher Ministerial Advisory Group (TEMAG). The review undertaken in 2014 by this advisory group was the 102nd inquiry into teacher education in Australia.
