    I assumed the title was a part of the joke.

    Our daughter's school has a newsletter, in which the principal wrote that NAPLAN testing was floored. I had to agree.

    But as a diagnostic tool it is a good thing.
    The initial purpose of the NAPLAN was to provide data to the students, parents, teachers and the schools about how the students a performing nationally, locally and individually. They then can use the info to target weaknesses and develop initiatives to help the students along.

    The use in league tables is a useless waste of time.

    Basically, what happens is they throw random shit in from the curriculum that we cover in the whole year. but the whole year hasn't passed yet so I sit there scratching my head at something I have never seen before, while thinking about the hurricanes' impending doom.

    it is also done in years 7 and 9

    That is the point. They need to know what you know just as much as what you don't know.
