2016 Naplan Results

 

The MySchool website Naplan results for 2016 were published last week. By viewing the results by numbers and comparing St Mary’s College to ‘like’ schools of a similar ICSEA, you can view St Mary’s College results in Reading, Writing, Spelling, Grammar, Punctuation and Numeracy for Years 5, 7 and 9. St Mary’s College has an ICSEA of 1011, with 1000 being the Australian average. This means that the education advantage of St Mary’s College is very slightly above the average for an Australian school. The ICSEA takes into account: educational background of parents, parental occupation, students where English is a second language, proportion of Indigenous students and whether a school is metropolitan, regional or remote in location. A number is then collated, demonstrating the advantage (or not) of a school educationally when compared to other schools.

The results for St Mary’s College in 2016 show that the college is at the required level in all areas compared to like schools with the exception of Year 7 Numeracy which is above the expected level and Year 5 Spelling which is below the expected level. This is a significant improvement if you compare the result to say 2010–2013. The College’s improvement in Naplan in Literacy and Numeracy compared to like schools is significant. Our challenge is to now have all areas of literacy and numeracy at, or about, the national average in Spelling (Years 5, 7 and 9) and Writing (Years 5 and 7). St Mary’s College teachers will continue to work hard to achieve this further improvement for the boys. Congratulations to our professional and hard-working staff. With good literacy and numeracy the boys will have the best chance to improve their academic results and to receive an education that will liberate (a cornerstone of Edmund Rice Education).
