Percentage of Students in Band Category

The Percentage of Students in Band Category report provides a high level view of a school’s percentage of students in the NAPLAN band categories and compares the scores to the school’s Statistically Similar School Group (SSSG) and NSW government schools (DoE).

Executive Directors and Directors Educational Leadership can view all schools within their Principal Network.

How will this report benefit me?

The report illustrates the performance of your school’s cohort percentage in the NAPLAN student band categories (top two bands, middle two bands, bottom two bands) over time and compares it to the SSSG and DoE.

The report highlights any changes or differences in results throughout time, for the selected school, the SSSG and DoE.
