The Bishop's Religious Literacy Assessment 2015 - Yr 3 & Yr 5

At the request of the Western Australian Bishops, Year 3 and Year 5 students in Catholic schools across Western Australia will take part in The Bishops’ Religious Literacy Assessment (BRLA) during the week commencing Monday 27 July (Term Three, Week Two).
Students enrolled in Year 3 and Year 5 who are following a regular classroom program are expected to participate. Students with disability are also entitled to participate in the assessment. Exemptions may apply.
The Nature and Role of the BRLA
The Bishops’ Religious Literacy Assessment is a large-scale, standardised assessment program. The BRLA consists of a series of Religious Education (RE) tests developed and Year 5 tests are marked by the office of Catholic Education Western Australia (CEWA). Formal school and student reports are produced by CEWA for students in Year 5 and Year 9.
The BRLA provides a ‘point in time’ snapshot of student performance in RE. Students’ knowledge and understanding of the content of the RE curriculum is assessed using a combination of multiple choice, short and extended response items. Students’ faith is not assessed. The use of the BRLA complements the school based assessment programs in RE.
Please contact your child’s teacher or Dianne Grinbergs, if you have any inquiries regarding the administration of The Bishops’ Religious Literacy Assessment 2015.
Dianne Grinbergs, Assistant Head of Primary
