Parental Perceptions of NAPLAN: Who’s Telling the Truth?


Each year students in Years 3, 5, 7, 9 participate in the National Assessment Program – Literacy and Numeracy (NAPLAN). The NAPLAN results are reported nationally through the Summary and National Reports (ACARA, 2008), and an individual report is provided to parents and caregivers for each student. The high-stakes nature of NAPLAN has resulted in parents placing increasing importance on the NAPLAN results. In this session we will compare children’s mathematics achievements in their school reports and the results reported in NAPLAN. We will also explore how teachers can address parents’ concerns and the extent to which discrepancies between school reports and NAPLAN results in mathematics have affected the parent-school relationship.
