"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.
