NAPLAN data provides insights


On Wednesday 31 August students in years 7 and 9 across secondary schools nationally received their NAPLAN results.

This data provides students and families with insights into students’ learning and standards in literacy and numeracy. At Catherine McAuley College (CMC) we use this data to help inform us on the success of our learning and teaching programs, particularly paying attention to our Year 9 students’ results as they have experienced over two years of learning at CMC by this stage. We also use this data to support the differentiation of our curriculum, so that students are learning at their point of need in our classrooms.

Overall, we are impressed with the application of our students to these tests. Our results show students at Year 9 achieving above-average results in writing. This has been an area of focus for the College over the last few years, as it was identified as requiring improvement and attention.

Our average Year 9 results in reading, writing and numeracy are the best they have been as a College across the last few years. All of our NAPLAN results, across all categories, have average results well above the national average.

We congratulate our students and teachers on these affirming results, particularly following a challenging couple of years of learning.

If you have any questions about your child’s NAPLAN results, please contact your child’s advocate.
