Dear Australian Curriculum, Assessment and Reporting Authority,

Please can you give me a copy of a document that shows the names of all the schools what got tested in 2015 or else a copy of a document that shows the names of all the schools on My School this year. One document is enough if there's more that one.

My request is under the Freedom of Information Act.

Yours faithfully,

Kylie Smith

Dear Kylie

Thanks for your recent post requesting the “names of all the schools what got tested in 2015 or else a copy of a document that shows the names of all the schools on My School this year”.

I advise that ACARA now publishes The Australian Schools List (http://asl.acara.edu.au/). To find out more information about this website, please see (http://asl.acara.edu.au/Home/About). This website was updated for 2015 data in October 2015 (see http://asl.acara.edu.au/Home/RecentUpdat.... You can search generally or by advanced search (government/non-government and primary/secondary).

You will find the update page helpful in determining whether or not to submit future FOI requests for this type of data.

Kind regards

Peter

Dear Mr Matheson,

Thank you kindly for your reply. The new link you sent me is just
great. It has everything I was looking for. It's strange but that you told me in November (https://www.righttoknow.org.au/request/n... that the information I wanted wasn't published but now you tell me it was published/updated in October 2015!

I therefore wish to withdraw my FOI request. I'll mark on my Right
to Know account that I got the information I requested.

Yours sincerely,

Kylie Smith

In November I asked for the information and they told me it wasn't available. "ACARA does hold a list of schools involved in NAPLAN testing in 2015, but this is not the same list of schools that will be published on My School" https://www.righttoknow.org.au/request/n... . Now when I ask for the same information in April 2016 they say it was already on their website in October 2015. Crazy like a fox?
