Now for NAPLAN in Australia

| November 10, 2014 | 0 Comments

The Australian federal government is getting the online National Assessment Programme – Literacy and Numeracy (NAPLAN) ready for 2016. Making the country’s largest school assessment programme digital presents several key challenges but will, says the government, enable “tailored testing” and timeous marking and feedback for Australia’s 9 500 schools. NAPLAN will also test students’ ability to engage with digital devices and content.

The Australian Curriculum, Assessment and Reporting Authority reports that the greatest problem is one of inequity: not all schools share the same quality or quantities of technologies and infrastructure, and audits of each school’s situation takes time. In addition, it will now become mandatory for all teachers to shift from paper to iPad or the equivalent in the classroom.
