PPTA releases position on National Standards

"A child is more than a test score."

January 28, 2010

PPTA is releasing a paper today in a bid to inform debate on National Standards and steer the country away from "˜assessment mania.'

The paper looks at the dangers of National's standards in a country that "already over-assesses," PPTA president Kate Gainsford said.

"Excessive monitoring does not improve teaching and learning," she said.
