IGS has achieved strong results in the Australian Curriculum, Assessment and Reporting Authority (ACARA) in National Assessment Program – Literacy And Numeracy (NAPLAN) tests.
“I am delighted to announce that IGS students have excelled in all areas of literacy and numeracy,” said IGS Head of Research and Innovative Learning Jacqui Baker.
“In particular, IGS students’ average scores for each of Years 3, 5, 7 and 9 are higher than state averages and higher than or equivalent to averages for NSW statistically similar school groups (SSSG) across all domains.”
- Year 3 students performed well above SSSG on grammar and punctuation.
- Year 5 performance was the highest over a six-year period, whereas State and SSSG performance declined.
- Year 5 and Year 9 students performed well above SSSG on reading, writing and numeracy.
- Year 7 performance and growth on writing was well above SSSG.
- Year 5 growth in reading, spelling, writing and numeracy was well above SSSG.
- Year 7 growth in writing and spelling was well above SSSG.
- Year 9 growth in spelling, reading and numeracy was well above SSSG.
“These outstanding results reaffirm our current literacy and numeracy strategies and will inform further strategic planning for the year ahead,” Ms Baker said.
“Teachers will now be analysing individual student data in the context of all formative and summative assessment collected throughout the year as they consider student learning progressions in literacy and numeracy.
“We are very proud of our students and warmly congratulate all students and their teachers on these outstanding results.”
