School Results - Scores by Domain
The Scores by Domain report compares NAPLAN results for multiple schools in the form of a box-and-whisker plot.
Executive Directors and Directors, Educational Leadership can examine the NAPLAN performance of schools of interest to see whether differences exist between them.
How will this report benefit me?
The Scores by Domain report allows for comparison between schools of interest in their NAPLAN performance. Executive Directors and Directors, Educational Leadership can observe if teaching approaches being implemented in individual schools have been successful.
What does the Scores by Domain report provide?
This report allows users to switch between box-and-whisker plot or violin plot and view the information.
NAPLAN Score Distribution by Domains
- This box-and-whisker plot compares the NAPLAN results for the selected assessment and domain between the selected schools. Show Violin Plot displays the distribution of the NAPLAN scores by number of students who achieved that score (the wider the violin chart at).
- Each box-and-whisker/box and violin represents the results for each domain.
- Hover over the box to view more details about the data:
- # Samples - Number of students who participated in the selected assessment and domain.
- Maximum - The highest result achieved in the assessment and domain by a member of the cohort.
- Quartile 3 - The score that is greater than 75% of the scores achieved by the cohort.
- Median - The score in the middle of the school’s distribution for the where 50% of the cohort scored above the score and 50% below.
- Average - The score that represents the central or typical value achieved by students in that assessment and domain (sum of scores achieved divided by number of scores).
- Quartile 1 - The score that is greater than 25% of the scores achieved by the cohort.
- Minimum - The lowest scored achieved in the assessment and domain by a member of the cohort.
Use the slicers to filter and analyse the data:
Step 1: Select a group of students
- Which school were they in?
- Which year was it?
- Which assessment?
- Which domain?
Step 2: Optionally, select a subset of students
- An enrolment type group?
- A specific enrolment type?
What should I look for?
- This chart shows differences in an assessment for different schools by each domain.
- Any difference between schools is reflective of the number of participants, the heterogeneity of student performance across NAPLAN domains, and the relative educational advantage of the student population. Large spreads of performance between schools can point to differences in the student population but also the differences in teaching and learning practice.
- Hover over each box plot to view the score distribution and the number of students in each school.
- Small schools have only a box with no whiskers, or a single line, due to the low number of students in each cohort. This is not a report error.
- Multiple years can be selected and combined in the calendar year slicer. This can assist for interpreting results for small schools.
