Might I ask?
A testucator from ACARA, expert at Naplanspeak, responds to some oft-asked questions. No laughing please.
He’s probably unsure of what goes on in a normal classroom, .:
Q, STRESS? A. Get teachers and parents to control it!
Q. DIFFICULTY? A. We’ve changed the tests!
Q. FEEDBACK? A. We’re getting better….a month earlier than last year.
Q. INSIGHT? A. We’re getting the whole picture now. We now know that those kids who failed in 2008 are still failing. That’s progress.
Q. TUTORING? A. No need. Teachers should work harder on NAPLAN preparation.
And that’s NAPLAN in a nutshell. Gurgle. Gurgle. Gurgle.
Politician! What part of NAPLAN testing don’t you understand?
Might I suggest that you just get rid of the stupid thing and let the teachers teach?
