Re: One ofr the pedants
Or, looking at the thread title - two for the pedants. :fishing
I fixed the title four you
I assumed the title was a part of the joke.
The new one is better.
Our daughter's school has a newsletter, in which the principal wrote that NAPLAN testing was floored. I had to agree.
Ha. I have to do that test today, tomorrow and thursday. Its criminal and completely irreflective of the school
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.

Are you in Year 3 or Year 5?
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.
Ah, mea culpa!
Ahh.. those were the days!
