New HSC Mathematics Syllabuses And Scaling For NSW Changed in 2018

Published by:

This is the follow-up blog entry for the NSW math scaling issue that I went over yesterday. The basic issue is that student is studying General Mathematics course in NSW it resulted in a higher score than if they had studied the more difficult intermediate HSC Mathematics course. I had already know reforms that aimed to address this issue are being prepared and rolling out in near future. I wanted to summarise them to give a more clear picture of what is happening particularly with the aspect that to do with Math.

The quoted information are all from following two articles Overhaul of NSW HSC courses starting 2018 and The HSC maths equation that doesn’t add up.

There’ll be more maths in science subjects, a greater focus on writing in English and a new emphasis on Australia’s western heritage in history under a revamped NSW Higher School Certificate. HSC students in 2018 and beyond will study new English, maths, science and history courses in the first shake-up of the core-subject syllabuses in almost two decades.

For the first time, statistics will be part of the calculus courses for mathematics extension students, reflecting the growing importance of data in work life.

A perceived anomaly in which some maths students have been selecting easier courses in order to gain a higher ATAR will also be scrapped.
A new marking system will ensure students taking higher-level maths will be appropriately scaled.

For science, there will be a greater focus on maths and quantitative analytical content.

A spokesman for the NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA) said the new maths syllabuses, to be introduced next year for the general maths course and in 2019 for higher-level courses, would address the issue.

“[The new] HSC mathematics syllabuses will feature common content and marking scales that allow direct comparison of students to taking the calculus and non-calculus based courses, and address concerns that ATAR scaling advantages students taking the non-calculus General Mathematics course,” the spokesman said.

This is a good step towards the right direction and after two decades are long over due to an update.

Why Aren’t Students Studying Higher Level Maths?

Published by:

Another random day of browsing NSW Department of Education’s site and I found this piece of a gem on a topic that I am deeply interested in. This one is Why aren’t students studying higher level maths? the full article is 31 pages, so I tried to summerise what got said, if you have the time and intest I most certainly recommend a read.

What is happening with Math enrolment in NSW.

In New South Wales (NSW), overall enrolments in mathematics in the Higher School Certificate (HSC) have increased by seven per cent from 2001 to 2015. However, enrolments in the HSC Mathematics course, an intermediate mathematics course that includes calculus, decreased by 4,453 enrolments over this period (see Figure 1 below). This reflects a drop from 39 per cent of all mathematics enrolments in the HSC in 2001 to 29 per cent in 2015. At the same time, enrolments in the HSC General Mathematics course (does not include calculus; renamed Mathematics General 2 in 2014) have increased by nine per cent since 2001.

The main points of investigation

1. Has there been a scaling advantage for HSC General Mathematics over HSC Mathematics for the
years 2009 to 2013?
2. Of the student and school characteristics available, which student- and school-level characteristics are
related to student choice of HSC General Mathematics rather than HSC Mathematics?
3. Do students studying STEM subjects at university regret choosing HSC General Mathematics?
4. Does the perceived scaling advantage or subject workload have greater influence on choosing HSC
General Mathematics over HSC Mathematics?

Foundings for the issues raised above

  1. Results showed a substantial and statistically significant scaling advantage for HSC General Mathematics over HSC Mathematics from 2009 through 201316.
  2. Once student- and school-level characteristics were adjusted for, results showed that certain types of schools were more likely than others to have students who chose HSC General Mathematics and potentially benefitted from the scaling advantage. Students from Technical and Further Education (TAFE)
    colleges had the highest odds of taking HSC General Mathematics, while students from government boys’ schools had the lowest odds.
  3. Despite the scaling advantage associated with choosing HSC General Mathematics, a significant proportion of students who went on to study tertiary STEM subjects at university and had studied HSC General Mathematics reported wanting, in hindsight, to have selected more challenging mathematics.
  4. It appears that HSC General Mathematics students were more influenced by perceptions of a lower workload rather than a scaling advantage.

 

Conclusion

In 2013 the average scaling advantage for taking HSC General Mathematics was 5.3 scaled marks, which is approximately equal to 1.3 ATAR points. Therefore, this scaling advantage is likely to be partially driving the declining enrolments in HSC Mathematics.

These findings suggest that addressing the scaling advantage may help to ensure that students choose mathematics subjects that more adequately prepare
them for their future studies and careers. Despite the presence of a scaling advantage for HSC General Mathematics, analysis of the Expectations
and Destinations Survey found that many students seemed to be more driven by the perceived workload advantages rather than a belief in a scaling advantage.

Education Is A Long Term Investment And Extremely Important To Future Of Australia

Published by:

I read this article Fixing disadvantaged students key to fairer, better economy by Ross Gittins a few days ago and could not agree more on this issue with him.

The first step in ensuring all our children get a decent education is better early childhood learning – a vital issue I’ll leave for its own column.

The next step is ensuring the money governments spend on schools is biased in favour of those students needing more help, not those schools that have managed to screw better deals out of the politicians over the years.

The advent of many modern technologies has destroyed old jobs and created news just as rapidly. We are entering a new phase of automation for many mundane tasks. You just have to look at things like washer machine, robot vacuum cleaner, manufacturing robots etc. Not just manual and manufacturing landscape are quickly changing even the relative new industries such as computer software etc are also changing, testing, deployments and many other aspects of it are getting automated as well. What happens is we need less manual software tester, more automated testers who can write code and maintain the automated tests. This is happening every in the Australia and the whole world.

Education is a key factor to facilitate this change, just to be able to read is maybe enough 50 years ago to gain useful employment, it is no longer the case for much more technically oriented jobs. We need to make everyone understand that education is important and also make it relevant to modern society. One interesting example of the success of East and South Asia immigration groups, one of the key is the value they put on the education of their children. Not everyone who is good education will be successful, but proportionally more of them will be so compared to the ones who are not.

Another School Funding Blog Entry Again!

Published by:

By now your guys must be really excited to see another blog entry again about school funding. Unfortunately, things like these actually can have a major impact on Australian Education down the years. We are getting information in a drip feed fashion. Reading the SMH article this morning Revealed: the high-fee private schools to win big under the Gonski 2.0 changes, it certainly did reveal some more information.

Federal funding for some of Sydney and Melbourne’s most prestigious private schools – which charge fees up to $34,000 a year – will soar over the next decade under the Turnbull government’s “Gonski 2.0” changes, while others will have their funding slashed.

The government has committed to funding all non-government schools at 80 per cent of their needs-based funding entitlement.

I think on this point I agree with a lot of people, we need to have a better understanding how the needs-based funding entitlement is calculated and designed. One of the argument by private schools is that if we do not fund them then public schools will have to handle more enrolments. That being said most people who go to the high-end private schools would be very unlikely end up back in the public school system. Certainly, for the private schools charging fees in the range around 30k, there is little argument to further boost the public funding. Public funding for schools needs to be taken into consideration how much fee and revenue the school in question already generating.

Following are example taken from the above mentioned SMH article

One principle from another private school said that they are certainly got used for the fund for swimming pools. How if you already collecting average close to 20k per student in yearly fee and also collecting over 4k per year in public funding per student deserve more than double the increase within next ten years for public funds. I was mostly supportive of reform of school funding previously but seeing more details coming out parts of it is becoming more unfavourable. Progressively over the years in Australia is Public Schools are saddled with students from lower social economic background and corresponding responsibilities. I think we deserve a better look at how the public funding model for private and private schools. The more informaiton being made available for public better the chance we will have a fair debate about this.

Average Primary School Class Size At Each Year In NSW

Data is taken directly from the site NSW Department of Education’s Site.

Note the decrease in class size is from Kindergarten to Year 2 level where from Year 3 to Year 6 it is about the same for last 20 years. This number matches with my experience at the local public schools.

Demountable Classrooms in NSW Schools

Published by:

I read an article on SMH to do with the topic of demountable classrooms in NSW schools. So I did some diggings and here is what I found out some interesting stats from NSW Department of Education’s own site.

As at July 2016, the Department of Education has a stock of 6,171 demountable buildings (classrooms and specialist spaces). Of these 5,192 are currently located in schools and the remainder is being repaired or is in storage waiting refurbishment. The Department has just over 44,767 teaching spaces in schools. Approximately 9.5% of these are in demountable buildings.

In fact, if you look at stats on the number of the demountable classrooms in NSW, this number fluctuate up and down a little, but overall they stayed about the same. I dug up the stats going back to 2011 and look like the percentage of demountable classrooms stayed about 10 to 12 percent of the total number. From memory in mid-2016 NSW was planning to build 1100 classrooms in the next four years. So even if there is zero increase in enrolment number this would only replace roughly 20 percent of deployed demountable classroom that are in NSW schools today. When you taking into consideration of expected increase in enrolment of both primary and secondary students, we will probably see the number of demountable classrooms increase not decrease over the next few years.

So we will continue seeing shrinking playgrounds and open spaces for the near future in NSW.

School Funding Stoush between NSW and Federal Government

Published by:

Following the recently proposed changes to the Federal government education funding model. the secretary of the NSW Department of Education Mark Scott has contacted all NSW school principles and warned them about the new Federal Government’s funding calculation. NSW Education Minister Rob Stokes has also questioned the accuracy of the new school funding model. The Federal Minister for Education and Training Simon Birmingham has come out and contradicted his NSW counter part’s opinions.

Regardless which side is correct, there are some good points raised such as the need to make public the data and method used to arrived at new education funding model etc.  That being said, overall speaking I personally think the new change is a big step towards the good direction relating to the funding issue. It is interesting that Labor lacked the courage to properly change the extremely broken private public education funding model. On the other hand, there is little risk of this change by the Turnbull’s Liberal Coalition government of losing votes on this issue. Regardless of potential gain or risk, it is refreshing to see some concrete good moves on the issue of education funding.

However being that the recent Australian domestic politics has been most short-sighted and good as this maybe, it may never get anywhere at all. We will just have to see how this turns out.

Minimum Standard Of Literacy And Numeracy To Be Eligible For The HSC Credential

Published by:

There are a couple of new article on this topic recently, so I read up on this on the internet. This is what I learned which is from 2020, students in NSW must meet the minimum standard of literacy and numeracy to be eligible for the HSC credential. The reason why this is done is so for the following reason.

The minimum standard is part of a broader NSW Government strategy to boost student literacy and numeracy across the state.

What is this standard? Again check the following points which taken from Department Education’s website.

The minimum standard is set at Level 3 of the Australian Core Skills Framework (ACSF), a nationally agreed standard of functional literacy and numeracy. Federal and state government ministers have endorsed the ACSF.

At ACSF Level 3, students can do things like:

  1. Find the time and date of a music concert on an online ticket website.
  2. Calculate the quantity of paint needed to paint a room.
  3. Estimate distance, travel time and costs for a transport route.
  4. Take notes from a lecture or training session.
  5. Create a personal weekly budget in a spreadsheet.
  6. Measure quantities to follow a recipe.
  7. Follow safety instructions in an equipment manual.
  8. Enter data in a computer-based management system.

 

More information on this standard can be found at Australian Core Skills Framework on the site of Department of Education. What read is roughly half of the students will fail to reach this standard at Year 9’s NAPLAN test and will require to sit through and pass online tests in the following years in order to be eligible for HSC Credential.

Victoria/Melbourne Secondary School Zone Map Year 11

Published by:

As discussed in the previous blog entry Victoria has a large range of mixed year range for primary and secondary schools. It is just not the best use of my time to try map everything at each year level. So this is a compromise I decided to only do the school zone map for Year 11 in addition to what that the Year 7 one which had been previously done already.

Also please visit the follow blog on more information on the basic principle of how school zone is drawn in Victoria. One important thing I want to reinterate is that outside of metro area the zone is based on closest distance need to travel to the school in question, so what is shown in the map I create is based on closest distance as the crow flies, so you should only take this as reference not a source of true. Please contact the school in question and they will be able to final confirmation for you.
