NAPLAN Results

NAPLAN Results



Miss 14 sat for the National Assessment Program – Literacy and Numeracy (NAPLAN) in May this year and got back the results last week. The NAPLAN tests are administered to students in Years 3, 5, 7, and 9.

My daughter started the year in Year 9, was bored to tears (literally!) and got moved up to Year 10 in June.

How to read the student report:

* Year 9 students with results in Band 5 (lowest band in the picture above) are below the national minimum standard.

* The lightly shaded area shows the range of achievement for the middle 60% of Year 9 students in Australia.

* The triangle shows the national average for Year 9 students.

* The dot shows the student’s result.

What it means:

* Reading result could have been better.  😉

More seriously, though, I am so very proud of her and at the same time feel validated for home schooling.

No WONDER she found Year 9 work boring!
