Less assessment means less learning!
As a current high school student, I can tell you that the current assessing system is fine, I think it’s a stupid idea to have to choose which level of education you want to attempt, and I can also tell you that with no assessment, students are extremely lazy (in year 9 and 10) and that when they start being assessed they start actually trying. And besides, the thing that makes the biggest difference in my education isn’t ncea, it’s the quality and workload on the teacher. I think that teachers should be paid more, and teacher training should be free. That way there will be enough quality teachers to reduce their workload, and provide quality teaching.
