Just pardon me for a moment....

Whilst I have a proud mummy moment....

Natalie brought home her NAPLAN (National Assessment Program-Literacy and Numeracy) report today.
This diagram/graph thingy shows an example of what the results may look like...The arrow points to to National average for year 3 students. The big black dot is where the individual child lies....
Now my years of teaching kind of made me realise that these standardized tests kind of suck. I know. Certain kids are going to do well on these tests. Its just the way that these tests are written/conducted/set up. I know all this in THEORY, however I have never been the proud mummy holding her daughters incredible results in her hands....

Look! Each dot is WAY above the National average *sniff*
And she has two that are sitting in this section...



Which means....

(if a students result is here it means the result is well above the expected level of achievement for Year 3 students)
yeah, I am pretty much claiming that it is all my good genes;)
