image for Bizarre Plans For New Reading Tests

The Coalition Government has announced strange new plans for reading tests for 6 year olds.

A spokesperson for the Department of Education confirmed that children in England would be the subject of "an innovative approach to the testing of one's reading ability".

The tests are to take up to 10 minutes and will use 40 or so words and expressions.

The plan is to include made up words and expressions to ascertain whether children could decode language using sound rather than just regurgitating memorised words.

Some of the non words and non expressions to be used include 'full employment', 'joined up government' and 'honest politicians'.
