Some Australian schools may delay national literacy and maths tests. Teachers said scheduling and preparations for the exams had been put on hold because a boycott of the tests by the country's teachers had been expected. The boycott was lifted last week, and a spokesman for Minister for Education Julia Gillard said teachers are expected to administer the tests on time. "Students don't need to prepare specifically for NAPLAN tests, as they are based on the curriculum," he said.
