NAPLAN Results 2017 – Year 7 and 9

Frank Italiano

Deputy Principal Middle School

Individual NAPLAN 2017 student reports will be distributed to all families. Students will receive a personalised envelope in Homeroom by Wednesday 30 August. If you have not received your copy, please contact the College.

For your convenience, the College has also added NAPLAN records in SEQTA.

NAPLAN tests the sorts of skills that are essential for every child to progress through school and life, such as reading, writing, spelling, grammar and numeracy. It is important to remember that NAPLAN tests are not pass/fail tests. At the classroom level it is one of a number of important tools used by teachers to measure student progress. Information specifically for parents and carers can be found in the 2017 NAPLAN information brochure for parents and carers.

How is NAPLAN performance measured?

NAPLAN is not a pass or fail type test, and is designed to illustrate the range of student performance across the country.

Individual student performance is shown on a national achievement scale for each test. The performance of individual students can be compared to the average performance of all students in Australia. Information on individual student reports is available in the Student report- information for parents brochure. More detailed information on the reporting of NAPLAN results is available in the Results and reports section.
