This year’s NAPLAN results have shown many significant improvements from the same cohort of student’s results two years ago.
Majority of our students are achieving well above the National Minimum Standard as well as a number of students achieving in bands 3-4 above the National Minimum Standard for their year level.
In light of these significant improvements in Numeracy, Navigator College has been selected by the University of Tasmania to be included in a research project titled Building an evidence Base for National Best Practice in Mathematics Education.
Our Year 3 results show excellent achievement in Grammar & Punctuation with 100% of students above National Minimum Standard and over 28% achieving in the top Band for Reading and 22.9% achieving in the top band for Spelling and Punctuation and Grammar. 97.1% of students achieved at or above National Minimum standard in Spelling and Writing and 85.3% achieved above National Minimum Standard for Numeracy.
Our Year 5 results remained steady this year when compared to the same cohort’s 2013 results with 100% achieving at or above National Minimum Standard in Spelling and Numeracy. 96.8% at or above National Minimum standard for Punctuation and Spelling. 23.3 % of students achieved in the top two bands for their year level in Reading and 22.6% achieving in the top two bands for their year level in Spelling and Grammar and Punctuation.
Our Year 7 Cohort this year has showed steady achievements in Writing and Numeracy since they were last tested in 2013. 94.9% achieving at or above the National Minimum standard for Writing and 97.4% at or above National Minimum Standard for Numeracy. There was also significant improvement in reading with 97.4% at or above National Minimum standard. 35% of Year 7 students achieved in the top two bands for their year level in Spelling, 30% for Punctuation and Grammar, 29% for Reading and 23.1% Writing.
Our Year 9 cohort has shown improvement in the areas of Reading, Grammar and Punctuation and Numeracy, with 100% of students achieving at or above National Minimum Standard for Numeracy. 96.2% achieved at or above National Minimum Standard for Reading.
Navigator College is currently working through the analysis of the 2015 NAPLAN results with focus being on the students who have achieved in the top band for their year level to inform parents and support our teachers to maximise student learning.
DISTRIBUTION OF INDIVIDUAL STUDENTS NAPLAN TESTS
The Individual Student Summary and NAPLAN Student Reports are currently being sorted and analysed and will be ready to be distributed to parents at the upcoming Term 3 Parent Teacher Interviews. Please arrange a time to meet with your child’s teacher once you receive the reports if you would like to discuss the NAPLAN results.
