The Education Review Office has suggested that at least 240 schools should find ways to increase the knowledge base of children to the concepts of maths.

Education Review Office CEO Dr Graham Stoop said 50% of schools need find ways to show children how to do maths with a great deal of accuracy.

The assessment takes in children from year four to year eight to see how their maths understanding has increased and/or remained static.

It has been observed that teacher aides are teaching children when in fact children should be taught by the experienced maths teachers so they reach their potential in maths.
