NAPLAN and NAPLAN online

Curriculum and assessment are among the most fundamental aspects of our professional roles as teachers. Significant national and international debate has highlighted the impact of undue political interference in these professional responsibilities and the benefits that flow from letting teachers teach. Now is the time for the profession to assert itself in this space like never before. After ten long years of NAPLAN tests impacting on education and teacher and student wellbeing, we need a complete review of this national assessment program.

To this end, all branches and associated bodies of our federal union, the Australian Education Union, have determined to withdraw support from NAPLAN Online and call for a complete review of the NAPLAN testing regime. The QTU has now also determined through democratic processes, to use industrial strength to halt the further introduction of NAPLAN online if required.
