Parents will still be able to rank schools by their NAPLAN ratings.
Parents will remain free to rank schools by their NAPLAN test results through the controversial My School website, after the federal government backed away from plans to overhaul the site.
The Coalition slammed the My School website before the election, saying there were concerns schools were teaching to the test and that the NAPLAN exams were making students ill with anxiety.
"We have major concerns about NAPLAN results being published on the My School website and the results being used to name and shame schools," the Coalition said in its 2013 federal election education policy.
"We want to consult further with teachers and the states on options that will see the NAPLAN testing return to a useful diagnostic tool as was intended, and will review the website if elected to government."
Education Minister Christopher Pyne said in opposition that NAPLAN had been "bastardised" and that only the improvements made by schools should be published on the website.
A Senate inquiry into the NAPLAN tests, released earlier this year, found that the comparative functions should be stripped from the My School site to "limit the disingenuous use of data to rank schools".
Allowing for the direct comparison of schools made the tests more stressful for students and schools, the Labor-Greens dominated committee found.
In its response to the committee report, the federal government said it does not support removing the functionality that enables the ranking and comparison of individual school results.
"My School is a unique online tool that promotes transparency in education by providing parents, schools, governments and the wider community with high quality, nationally comparable data on the performance and progress of Australian schools," the government said.
"The My School website was purposefully designed to minimise the construction of crude league tables which create unfair and indefensible comparisons of Australian schools."
While the website allows parents to compare statistically similar schools, the government said it provides the contextual information needed to make fair and meaningful comparisons.
A spokesman for Education Minister Christopher Pyne said the government had commissioned the Education Department to review the presentation of results on the My School site and that it would report back by the end of the year.
Greens school spokeswoman Penny Wright said: "This is a head-in-the-sand response from the government and it's particularly disappointing because Christopher Pyne promised action on NAPLAN before the election."
We wanted the ranking and comparative functions for individual schools on the MySchool removed, so the test could go back to being about helping students again."
