Abstract Literacy testing, teaching and standards remain high on Australia's national educational educational agenda. Critics suggest that some state reading tests inaccurately report on students' reading ability and that some students who meet the reading benchmark actually struggle with their reading. They criticise the tests on the grounds they are based on a whole language approach to reading instruction. In this article I draw on an extensive study into oral reading, which adopted a sociocultural view of reading and report on classroom reading assessment practices in the primary school. These practices are discussed in relation to what teachers and students learn about reading.
