My Interviews with concerned parents Johanna Gorman “ I think it is a good thing, having their stage of learning benchmarked in the middle of the primary years, so something can be done to address any weaknesses before it becomes a bit too late” (2008).
Parent Opinions “ NAPLAN is a waste of time - it tells me nothing about the development of my child and is used to cement division in our community” ( Robertson , 2009.)
“ Lets Introduce NAPLAN!” “ Hmm I don’t know..”
“ high-stakes standardised testing contravenes credible academic research which shows little benefit to students, schools and education systems” The AEU says:
“ Does that mean I’m exempt?” “ Or me?”
“ There will be NO talking during this test!”
Benefits of peer assessment <ul><li>Broadening their knowledge and understanding as a result of the wide response they would receive in regards to the work produced. </li></ul><ul><li>The opportunity to critically appraise others’ work and in turn develop social and academic skills. </li></ul><ul><li>Extends students’ understanding and ability to work collaboratively with others. </li></ul>
Consider both the Pros and Cons before making a decision! = +
