2023 Naplan Results
This year, the Australian Curriculum Assessment and Reporting Authority (ACARA) has introduced new standards to NAPLAN reporting. Four proficiency standards will replace the previous 10 numerical bands and national minimum standard used in previous years’ reporting:
• Exceeding: the student’s result exceeds expectations at the time of testing.
• Strong: the student’s result meets challenging but reasonable expectations at the time of testing.
• Developing: the student’s result indicates that they are working towards expectations at the time of testing.
• Needs additional support: the student’s result indicates that they are not achieving the learning outcomes expected at the time of testing. They are likely to need additional support to progress satisfactorily. It will be the clear responsibility of schools to ensure these students are provided with the additional support needed to progress satisfactorily, informed by NAPLAN results, other school-based assessment data and teachers’ knowledge of these students.
As we have not been provided with data to compare our results with the State or National average it is difficult to assess the quality of the results but they certainly appear to be very positive particularly in Numeracy, Writing and Reading in both Grade 3 and Grade 5. This data has been shared with staff and will be analysed to see what we need to address in future to continue to improve our programs for our students. Our NAPLAN Results have increased year on year for the last five years in all areas due to the excellent work of our teachers and the way they track students to tailor programs and support for each individual student.
