The NZ Herald has an article regarding NCEA pass rates; they’re “getting better”.

I would say that although the pass rates are higher, that doesn’t necessarily mean they’re better.

It could mean they’re easier, which means people could be as dumb or dumber than previous years, but passing instead of failing. That’s not a better outcome for students.

There are too many variables. And I guess I shouldn’t be too cynical.
