ACARA Results

13/03/2017
ACARA publishes the latest data on around 10,000 Australian schools on the My School website each year. Recently, the 2017 update was released which included:
 
· 2016 NAPLAN results
 
Since 2013, ACARA has released information on schools that demonstrate substantially above average gain in their NAPLAN results, as students progress from Year 3 to Year 5 and from Year 7 to Year 9.

 

Identifying substantially above average gain.

Identified high gain schools demonstrated substantial NAPLAN improvement in both reading and numeracy (except where noted) as follows:
 
1. an overall gain that exceeds the national average by more than one standard deviation unit; and
 
2. an overall gain higher than schools with similar ICSEA levels, by more than one standard deviation unit; and
 
3. an overall gain higher than that shown by students with the same NAPLAN starting score, also by more than one standard deviation unit.
 
All identified schools had to have matched NAPLAN results for at least 15 students and the overall percentages of matched students had to be higher than 70%.
 
We are excited to advise that ACARA has identified Stretton State College as having demonstrated substantially above average gain in NAPLAN results.
 
"On behalf of ACARA, I would like to extend my congratulations to you and your school community on this achievement. Gains of this magnitude are significant and worthy of highlighting and acknowledgement."
CEO ACARA - Robert Randall
 
Well done Team Stretton!
