Smarter Tests

Over at The Education Sector, Thomas Toch has a report on what the US federal government could do to promote better tests (which analyse comprehension, not just rote learning). He quotes a figure of $10-30 per student for typical tests, which as Caroline Hoxby pointed out a few years ago is astonishingly cheap. Incidentally, I’ve been trying to figure out the comparable figure for Australia, with no luck whatsoever. Does anyone have any leads on the cost of typical Australian tests?
