There’s a little over a week to go until many Aussie school kids will be getting ready for NAPLAN. It is a timely reminder that standardised testing is not always the best way to compare different learning styles and preferences.
I have been chatting to Miss 9 about NAPLAN with the aim of telling her it really doesn’t matter how she goes with it. It is playing on her mind as her conversation swings from NAPLAN, dress shopping and the school talent show. I tend to focus on the later two as they are way more fun.
If you’ve got a child sitting NAPLAN next week then this quote is a good reminder of ensuring you focus on your child’s gifts which may or may not shine through NAPLAN results.
