The Australian Curriculum, Assessment and Reporting Authority (ACARA) has identified over 70 schools with above average improvements based on NAPLAN data.
The debate regarding standardised testing in Australian school will continue, however, the most important part of the article published by ABC journalist Nicole Chettle is that:
The Association of Heads of Independent Schools of Australia (AHISA), reminded parents to look beyond the My School website when evaluating schools.
"My School offers parents some insight into school performance on NAPLAN tests up to Year 9, but there are a host of parental concerns that the site does not address, and was not designed to address," AHISA chairwoman Karen Spiller said in a statement.
"I strongly encourage parents to visit a school ... rather than rely solely on the single dimension of NAPLAN results."
