Parliamentary Questions

Question Without Notice No. 264 asked in the Legislative Council on 11 April 2018 by Hon Alison Xamon

Minister responding: Hon S.M. Ellery
Parliament: 40 Session: 1
Answered on 11 April 2018


264. Hon ALISON XAMON to the Minister for Education and Training:

I refer to concerns about the impact of NAPLAN testing on students and schools, and to the proposal that NAPLAN be reviewed.

(1) Does the minister support a review of NAPLAN?

(2) If yes to (1), why?

(3) If no to (1), why not?

Hon SUE ELLERY replied:

I thank the honourable member for some notice of the question.

(1)–(3) My position is that I am aware there are other jurisdictions calling for a review of NAPLAN. There will be further discussion of this at future Education Council meetings, including this Friday in Adelaide. I look forward to hearing the arguments and any proposed alternatives before I reach a decision.
