Assessment, Accountability and the 1996 School Certificate Science Examination

  • Geoff Stedman

Abstract

The discovery of serious flaws in the 1996 School Certificate science examination led to a vigorous public debate and to an extended discussion between the New Zealand Institute of Physics (NZIP) and the New Zealand Qualifications Authority (NZQA). This article documents these discussions from the point of view of the NZIP, and reflects upon accountability in the assessment of learning in science.
