1 The assessment of writing changed in 1996 and is not comparable to earlier years

2 Figures prior to 2004 are based on task/test assessments.

Figures for 2004 are based on a combination of task/test assessment in non-pilot schools and new post-2004 teacher assessment arrangements in pilot schools.

Figures for 2005 onward are based on post-2004 teacher assessment arrangements. There were no test/task reporting arrangements for science, therefore data prior to 2005 are not available.

Figures from 2004 onwards are not directly comparable with those prior to 2004, and care is needed in interpreting trends in the data.

3 Prior to 1998 data on sub-levels are not available.

Science data are not reported at sub-level therefore figures for 2B are not available.

4 All figures are based on final data, with the exception of 2009 which is based on provisional data.

Notes:

Numbers are rounded to nearest 100.

Percentages are rounded to nearest percentage point.
