A lot of it has to do with the school too. Our school has the right approach. It is one test one time which cannot possibly determine how your child is doing but all it does is gives a rough guide. Your child may have an off day on the test and there for not do well – so be it! Also some schools teach to NAPLAN so they are going to perform better. Can you honestly remember when you were in year 5 /7/9 or 3 what your test results were and has anyone ever asked or cared when going for a job interview what your results were on your year 7 NAPLAN? Just do the test and move on!
