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.
