Educational Accountability and Students with a Disability in Australia
Dempsey, Ian; Conway, Robert
Australian Journal of Education, v49 n2 p152-168 Aug 2005
One of the outcomes of regular education reform in Australia has been the development of a national testing program for school students. This article examines the degree to which students with a disability participate in this testing, and the extent to which the testing of students with a disability may help to achieve the National Goals of Schooling in this country. Several international comparisons with the Australian situation are made. A number of recommendations are made to facilitate the participation of students with a disability in national testing as a means of achieving the goal of educational equity for these students.
