NAPLAN pic.jpg

NAPLAN (the National Assessment Program – Literacy and Numeracy) are tests of basic skills administered to Australian students. NAPLAN data is used to rank each school’s performance against all other schools.  This cartoon illustrates ‘The rating Game’ in the latest Australian Education Union Journal (South Australia Branch). Author Lara Golding argues that NAPLAN is ‘fatally flawed’.


  1. Great cartoon Simon!

  2. Could I use this image for an english paper I am writing. Only the teacher will see it and it helps support my argument. Let me know. Thanks!

    • Sorry for the grammatical error, it was meant to be a question.

      • Hello Reese, certainly. I will email you a higher quality copy.
        Best wishes with your essay,
