Accomplished Education Researcher Seminar Series : NAPLAN: Driving school improvement or doing the work of the devil? Other events...
Controversy continues to surround national student assessment in Australia. However, I argue that testing is neither good nor bad: the devil lies in what people teachers, school, systems and even parents do about the tests and the data they generate. I report the experiences of principals, teachers and curriculum consultants in one educational authority to describe how responsibility for interrogating, interpreting and applying data has gradually shifted from an external top-down approach to an internal bottom-up model in a planned, sustained and centrally supported manner, during the past eight years.
Speaker(s) Winthrop Professor and Faculty Dean Helen Wildy
