What is Scout?

Scout is an education data and analysis platform, developed to provide better information about our schools in one central place.

Scout allows educators to navigate rich data sources to assist with planning and implementation that leads to ongoing improvement and school excellence. Teachers will be able to use Scout to review and monitor their students’ assessment results as well as student growth and performance trends.

From 2018, NAPLAN data will only be available through Scout. SMART will continue to be available  to access historical data up to 2017. Scout will hold both historical data and all future NAPLAN results.

It's easy to get access
