Education Standards Institute’s Dr Kevin Donnelly says NAPLAN “isn’t a very good measure” for analysing students’ knowledge of essential subjects.

“They set the bar so low that most students, 90, 95, 98 per cent can get over so there’s a very low bar in terms of performance,” Dr Donnelly told Sky News host Rita Panahi.

“We have a significant number of students underperforming.

“Despite the additional billions invested in the education, our results are either going backwards or they’ve flatlined so there’s more that needs to be done.”
