What an absolutely stupid idea for students to be able to sit exams using text message language.
What next - shorthand? If kids cant learn how to read and write English correctly, but are goingto be allowed to use text language, what will happen when they get into the workforce or into University and can't write correct English and spell correctly. Will todays kids have a text message CV? You can't use spell check on text message language (yet).
NZQA should be taken out and shot. Is this how they are going to get kids to pass exams? Wh cnt thy jst dlt th vwls? No that's a dumb idea as well.....kids these days won't know what vowels are if they communicate in text message language in formal exams.
*scratching my head in disbelief - don't even go there.
