The tests are for assessment of students in Years 4-6. They can only be used online, and take about an hour to run.
They complement Science: Thinking with Evidence (Years 7-10), but are scored on a separate scale.
The tests include:
- a range of interactive question types made possible by the on-line testing environment
- a wide variety of contexts that we hope students will find interesting, engaging, and relevant.
You can view sample questions for the three tests by clicking on the links : Test JS1 (Year 4), Test JS2 (Year 5), Test JS3 (Year 6). You will need to subscribe to NZCER Marking to preview the complete test.
