Abstract

This article discusses assessment to improve teaching and learning in science. The report from the National Review of Science Education (2001) recommended that a resource bank of high quality assessment items be developed to support improved assessment practice in school science. A response to this has been the Science Education Assessment Resources (SEAR) project which is developing an online resource bank of science education assessment resources for teachers. The SEAR Project is described, as is the National Assessments of Scientific Literacy which will test the scientific literacy of year 6 students in 2003.
