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 the students who have participated in NAPLAN Online and NAPLAN Paper.

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’s achieving in the top two bands. For example, some focus area may have been answered extremely well by the school, indicating a strength in the teaching of that topic or skill. It may also help a school identify a focus area which requires further attention and targeted teaching.

How can I use the 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 the Assessment and Reporting, Student Performance Measures, Effective Classroom Practice, Data Skills and uses elements of the SEF.


What should I look for?

  • Focus areas where there are larger proportion of items which 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 are larger proportion of items which 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.

Where does this data come from?

NAPLAN.

How frequently is data updated?
