Schools in Victoria and South Australia suffered computer glitches during NAPLAN testing last week.  The curriculum authority is now investigating the glitches.  Students in Victoria were advised to go back to pen and paper to complete the assessment.  Victorian Education Minister James Merlino said, “NAPLAN online has failed again. The rollout and performance of NAPLAN online is simply not good enough, and Victorian students, parents and teachers deserve much better than this.”

Victoria and South Australia were two states that experienced the worst of the technical problems. Australian Education Union (AEU) federal president Correna Haythorpe said, “We’ve had dozens of calls from around the country about the glitches that have occurred… with NAPLAN online testing, from poor broadband to infrastructure problems, to time delays in terms of logging on.”
