The OLNA (Online Literary and Numeracy Assessment) is a test that identifies whether a student is meeting the minimum standard of literacy and numeracy  needed to navigate the demands of everyday life and work in a knowledge-based economy. Meeting the OLNA requirements is also necessary for a student to graduate high school.

Who sits the OLNA?

Any student who did not achieve Band 8 or higher in reading, writing and/or numeracy in the Year 9 NAPLAN test must complete the corresponding OLNA module(s).

The OLNA must be taken in Semesters 1 and 2 of Year 10 and Semester 1 of Year 11 until the test is passed.

Students also have the option to make further attempts to pass the OLNA test in Semester 2 of Year 11 and Semesters 1 and 2 of Year 12 if required.

Who is Exempt from sitting OLNA?

Students who have achieved Band 8 or higher in any of the three components of reading, writing and numeracy in their Year 9 NAPLAN test are considered to have met the required standard in these learning areas and are not required to sit the OLNA test.

OLNA Preparation Courses

MMA conducts preparation classes at key times during the year ahead of testing windows for OLNA.

Our OLNA preparation courses are an integral component of our Term 1 Master Class Program at Christ Church Grammar School and our January Jump Start Revision Program at Hale School.

In February students can enrol in six hours of OLNA preparation in the Master Class Program held at Christ Church Grammar School. With the help of specialist teachers, students will participate in a series of skill enhancing strategies which will better prepare them for the OLNA assessments in February/March. (See Master Class Program).

MMA will also deliver an intensive ten-hour OLNA preparation program in the first week of the July holidays on the Christ Church Grammar School campus (1-5 July 2024).  These classes will prepare students for the July OLNA testing period which commences 22 July 2024 for years 10, 11 and 12.
