Making NAPLAN a learning experience

NAPLAN 2012 starts tomorrow and continues on Wednesday and Thursday. It is an important exercise for students, schools, teachers and parents. A lot of ill-informed and biased information about NAPLAN is spread around in the media every year about this time. NAPLAN is an important learning experience for everyone. Students are challenged to show what they know and understand about Writing, Reading, Language Conventions and Numeracy. Schools and teachers find out how their teaching programs are working in these critical areas of education. Parents find out how well their children are learning at school. Most important of all, these diagnostic tests provide a way forward for all students (no matter what their ability level) so that they can improve their Literacy and Numeracy skills. Get into NAPLAN and enjoy the learning experience!

This is the last NAPLAN post for a while. We will return towards the end of May with information about the detailed answers and responses for the May 2012 NAPLAN Tests.
