Summary
"Discusses the evaluation of the literacy component of the NAPLAN test for Year 3, and the language samples for each year level. Literacy components assess reading, writing and language conventions and this paper focuses on the reading and language components; argues that the NAPLAN tests are standardised and Indigenous children in remote communities don't have the cultural knowledge that English speaking children have; notes that spelling tests need to be monitored to ensure that they are testing spelling rather than grammatical knowledg; states the difficulties when creating language convention texts that are truly diagnostic due to the mix of languages spoken in Indigenous remote communities."--Abstract
