ANA is prioritized as the central tool for tracking progress towards achieving the acceptable levels of learner performance in literacy and numeracy in schools.

All learners in grade 1-9 in public schools and only grade 3 or 6 in state-funded independent schools will write ANA in 2014.

In 2014 the DBE will pilot the assessment of a sample of learners in Grade 7 and 8. Based on the findings of the pilot, a decision will be made in 2015 on the assessment of Grade 7 and 8 learners.
