Education—student performance
(Question No 736)

Mr Coe asked the Minister for Education and Early Childhood Development, upon notice, on 22 September 2017:

(1) Given that in the 2017-18 Budget, Strategic Objective 1 (Quality Learning) has four strategic indicators using mean NAPLAN achievement data for reading and numeracy, that all four indicators show actual results were below target results and the Auditor-General’s recent report on Performance Information in ACT Public Schools concluded that, ‘…for all NAPLAN tests across all year levels the majority of ACT public schools’ NAPLAN results are lower than similar schools in Australia’, has the Directorate considered presenting this comparative information as a strategic indicator in its annual Budget Statement; if so, can the Minister outline why it was rejected; if not, why not.

(2) Can the Minister outline how the Education Directorate monitors the performance of schools in other jurisdictions, and include (a) what data is collected, (b) how the data is collected, (c) what that data is used for and (d) how long the data is stored.

(3) Will the Education Directorate release the collated data provided to the Auditor-General; if so, (a) when it will be released, (b) where it will be published and (c) will the Education Directorate continue to publish the data; if not, why not.

(4) Can the Minister provide a copy of the data provided by the Education Directorate and used for figures 2.2 to 2.15 in the Auditor General’s report on Performance Information in ACT Public Schools.

Ms Berry: The answer to the member’s question is as follows:

1. The 2017-2018 Budget strategic indicators were established by the 2014-2017 Education Strategic Plan. I have not yet made a decision about future strategic indicators.

Mean NAPLAN scores, as an indicator of point in time educational attainment, are a narrow and potentially inadequate indicator of school and teaching performance particularly where key objectives of school education include teaching that facilitates year on year learning gain.
