What a joke has become. How can we ever trust the results after today's debacle? I think the cosmos has spoken.

The test can get fucked. I had my 8 year old in tears worried about sitting it

Good grief. Now even the ICSEA score for is being gamed (to increase NAPLAN scores). This testing has morphed into something completely toxic. And I think it is beyond saving in any form.

Hey let's force kids to do , which already sucks and adds no beneficial data, but now let's add more stress by having an online system that crashes

Mr8 is starting today. Took his squishy brain stress ball to school and seemed in a good mood 🤗 Told him just to do his best to put his brain on the page and try to have a fun day. He reminded me - ‘Mum remember when I put my squishy brain on the page? So funny’ 🧠📝🤣🙌

Shout out to all the tech support people in schools who have had pressure and stress in week. An uncomfortable first hour or two until they realised it wasn’t their fault. I wonder how many hours collectively analysing firewall logs the country just spent? Tribute paid.

We had some technical issues with this morning. Who could've foreseen that having hundreds of thousands of people online at the same time would cause issues?

How’s everyone else going with ? I just had over 100 interruptions to the test - disconnect/reconnect in a group of 21 year 5s. That’s not an environment where anyone can expect to well ☹️ Talk about an unfair playing field!

starts tomorrow, and I'm ready to bet that some teachers sent home that "personal" letter that's been online for years about how NAPLAN doesn't know you like to sing, or dance, or that you're a nice person.

Thinking of those students sitting tests this week. Remember: it's what you learn that is important not the test you do.

I have four kids doing today (Y3, Y5, Y7 & Y9). I appreciate the burden on teachers / schools & the debate around actual merit, but from a perspective, I’m glad my kids are taking it. A tough test w/ no consequences is good practice for tests that WILL matter.

Miss 8 just said some classmates are really nervous about tomorrow. I told her no one is ever going to ask her in 10 years time how she went in her Yr 3 tests. I said “no one will care in 2 weeks time. If you don’t know it you don’t know it. “ Stop stressing

Good luck to everyone sitting today, particularly those students with ADHD who are regularly denied their right to an equal education because they are told they’re not ‘entitled’ to accommodations.

Broadly, I'm a supporter of NAPLAN. Less so of the technical disruptions that impacted our students today. High levels of frustration from the kids & their teachers and a big wondering from me about the validity of the collected data.

A4 Keep (bc you know they’ll replace it with something similar) but get rid of publishing results & ranking schools. Also reconsider timing of assessment

So Mr 10 not only comes home upset and angry about the "stupid NAPLAN bombing out all the time and making me rush" but says "but then if I do it again I kinda know what to do". Nothing a crafty statement about validity and reliability of can't fix, right?
