Qualifications and standards

Reviewed Literacy and Numeracy unit standards

The reviewed Literacy and Numeracy unit standards are now available.  Unit standard 26624 (Read texts with understanding) is an interim version, allowing participants in the pilot of the Literacy and Numeracy Digital Guidance Tool (LiNDET) to be awarded the credits based on a mix of digital and naturally occurring evidence. The fully reviewed version of 26624 will be published when possible.

The review was conducted by representative review panels, supported by an email network of stakeholders.

The changes include provision for online assessment for two standards, 26623 (Use number to solve problems) and 26624.
