ALL students will sit national science tests in Years 3, 5, 7 and 9 under an expansion of the literacy and numeracy testing program that bolsters the federal government’s reforms linking school improvement to increased funding.

The National Education Reform Agreement, which will go to the Council of Australian Governments on April 19, includes an expansion of the existing National Assessment Program — Literacy And Numeracy tests to include science from 2015, with online testing available from 2016.
