NAPLAN Reading and Numeracy - Guided Data Package
The NAPLAN Reading and Numeracy – Guided Data Package report shows how the school has performed against each NAPLAN reading and numeracy focus area. It also includes performance against English and mathematics syllabus outcomes.
This report includes results for students who have participated in NAPLAN Online.
This report is available to school-based staff and network directors.
How will this report benefit me?
The report allows schools to analyse their NAPLAN performance in each focus area of the assessment for reading and numeracy. This can pinpoint strengths and/or gaps in student achievement. For example, some focus areas may have been answered exceptionally well by the school, indicating strength in the teaching of that topic or skill. It may also help a school identify a focus area that requires further attention and targeted teaching.

Hovering over an element of a chart summarises the category in the chart, the percentage contribution of that category, and the number of items in this category asked of students.
How can I use this report to support my school self-assessment?
This report can support schools in understanding the effectiveness of teaching strategies at the school level. It assists schools with Assessment and Reporting, Student Performance Measures, Effective Classroom Practice, and Data Skills and uses elements of the SEF.
What should I look for?
- Focus areas where there is a larger proportion of items that have been answered incorrectly. These may point to gaps in student understanding and the need for targeted teaching of that focus area.
- Syllabus Outcomes where there is a larger proportion of items that have been answered incorrectly. These may point to gaps in student understanding and the need for targeted teaching of that particular outcome.
- The % Item Contribution shows those Focus Areas and Syllabus Outcomes, which students are asked more frequently in NAPLAN.
