Crit­i­cisms aimed at se­nior school as­sess­ment are not on the mark


TEACHER Jee­van Soorya Dhas (Letters, Sep 4) wrote that un­der the cur­rent se­nior sec­ondary school as­sess­ment, “teach­ers are able to tell their stu­dents what ques­tions would be in their ex­ams”, im­ply­ing this is com­mon prac­tice.

I won­der whether he would ex­tend his slur to all aca­demics as this un­pro­fes­sional prac­tice is also pos­si­ble in univer­si­ties where ex­ams are set and marked in­ter­nally. Dhas also claimed “schools can teach what­ever they want”. He will find his physics syl­labus on the Queens­land Cur­ricu­lum and As­sess­ment Au­thor­ity web­site.
