Assessment in the press -MySchool site

Much has been written about the recent release of the latest version of the My School website (www.myschool.edu.au). We would like to see more attention to support of teachers' assessment skills and to the broader matter of educational assessment in general. The provision of longitudinal data will be a boon over time but it's important to remember that the NAPLAN data represents a very thin slice of what is going on in schools. When we can better substantiate the quality of teachers' assessment and school-based data, there will be a much richer source of information than is currently available. proEMA is singularly focused on achieving this goal.
