Australian school students are sitting down to the controversial NAPLAN testing this week, putting themselves through three days of rigorous testing on maths, spelling, language comprehension and creative writing.
Year 3, 5, 7 and 9 students are tested and rated based on national and local averages. Schools results are also made public.
