NAPLAN test too confusing for students

NAPLAN examMonday 18th August 2014

The NAPLAN writing test was so hard this year that students’ marks have slipped across the country and in NSW there has been a “substantial increase” in the number of students who will receive zero because the question was too confusing.

The Australian Curriculum, Assessment and Reporting Authority (ACARA), which runs NAPLAN, is investigating problems with the writing question but also suggested the reason students across all years scored lower in writing compared to 2011 may have been because schools over-prepared for the test.
