Over the last two decades, large-scale national, or provincial, standardised testing has become prominent in the schools of many countries around the globe. National Testing in Schools: An Australian Assessment draws on research to consider the nature of national testing and its multiple effects, including:

  • media responses and constructions such as league tables of performance
  • pressures within school systems and on schools
  • effects on the work and identities of principals and teachers
  • and impacts on the experience of schooling for many young people, including those least advantaged.

Using Australia as the case site for global concerns regarding national testing, this book will be an invaluable companion for education researchers, teacher educators, teacher education students and teachers globally.
