NAP – Science Literacy report released

15 March 2017

Today ACARA has released the latest National Assessment Program (NAP) – Science Literacy report that shows Australian students’ science literacy levels have remained static since students were last assessed.

Data from the NAP – science literacy assessments reveal little change in national performance levels in terms of both average student achievement and the proportion of students performing at or above the proficient standard. The proficient standard is set at a challenging level, and only just over half (55.1 per cent) of Year 6 students reached or exceeded it.

Read the report on the NAP website.
