What should I look for?

  • The charts show NAPLAN band groups (top 2, middle 2 and bottom 2) and the distribution of students within each group.
  • Are there schools in the network with high percentages in either the low or the high band group?
  • Movement of students between the bands allows schools to plan for and address needs of their student cohorts. The report also allows identification of schools making progress so that the interventions put in place can be studied to determine if would be useful for transplanting to like schools.
