Glitches prompt Naplan trial system trial snub

Glitches with the national online Naplan trial system have prompted Queensland to withdraw from the latest version of school student assessment, but the federal government will push ahead. Problems remain just weeks before the trial, and Queensland Education Minister Kate Jones says she is concerned that students’ ability will not be accurately tested.

“I was not able to get assurances federally about the readiness (of the system) and my strong view is that I would rather that we get it right,” Ms Jones told reporters on Friday after a meeting with her state and territory counterparts in Hobart.

“We will be sitting it out in 2017 and will look at it again in 2018.”
