Who cares, don't worry about it. Naplan is a joke. I've not heard a positive thing from a teachers perspective.
As Maggie Dent says- naplan won't tell you anything about your child that a quick chat with their teacher can't. It's a wicked waste of the public purse.
I told my child give it a crack, its nothing serious and try not to get the giggles, sometimes the giggles make you fart. Not stinking out the class is more important than naplan.
Why is everyone having a go at the OP?
She’s asking a legit question - is there a plan for those affected by the tech issues!
My yr 9 is doing it this week too but on paper - I’d be asking the same question if she was affected too.
Choose kind ladies
accross Australia redoing the writing test or voiding the test for ALL students accross Australia - not sure how this works for year 9s - will they ALL then have to do OLNA? A lot of (the bigger) schools can't fit retesting into the schedule for next week (which is the 'testing window') - let alone catch-up tests for absent students, so will be interesting to see the outcome. Even if they can find the time they don't have enough computers available. Perhaps they'll have to do the paper test even if at a school doing it online?
My children wont be doing NAPLAN, biggest heap of shit and waste of money, I just sent a note saying they are excused from the test. No problem from teachers, sounded like they agreed.
I'm pretty sure the idea is, if ur kid attempts naplan properly and his results are lower than band 8 or whatever it is everyone goes on about, the chances are it has nothing to do with naplan itself but if your child probably isn't passing because he/she isn't that academic.
So my child's Maths and English mark so far is 34-36%. They will definitely score terribly on Naplan but they probably won't pass year 12 because no matter what tutoring or extra work that's put in, the poor kid is just terrible , TERRIBLE at school work.
So they scored poorly on naplan because they are not doing well at school, it has nothing to do with naplan. That's just a guide to tell me where my child sits in relation to the other kids in the school and nationally
We got a text msg to say students would be resitting with pen/paper tests, but who gives a f**k. Not end of world
Yeah, I've always had that attitude too, but if students don't achieve band 8 in NAPLAN in year 9, they have to do OLNA, If they don't pass OLNA they can't graduate year 12. I think its incredibly unfair some students have lost their opportunity to avoid OLNA. I also tjink it's increfibly unfair that so many kids have been put in this situation. I dont agree with NAPLAN but it is part of the system currently. These kids have been preparing, had other classes missed to do the test, started the test, then are unable to complete it. According to my child everyone at their school was really pissed off, students, teachers etc
I would say they get to do it again. But please - for your childs sake - calm the f**k down 😂. OLNA is not the end of the world and is easier than NAPLAN. You're putting pressure on your child for nothing. My child didn't even do NAPLAN last year he is has multiple chances to pass OLNA over the next 3 years. Stress less.
