Benefits

How can I use this report?

The report can help to compare current performance with agreed school target measures for NAPLAN Expected Growth in Reading and Numeracy. School leaders can use this report for an indication of progress towards meeting the agreed targets related to the percentage of students achieving expected growth (between NAPLAN 3 to 5 or between NAPLAN 7 to 9).

What should I look for?

The report displays baseline, target, and trajectory bounds overlayed with actual results year by year. The agreed targets and upper-lower bounds can be compared with actual results for the percentage of students meeting their expected growth for both NAPLAN reading and numeracy assessments. The trajectories are an indication of possible progress towards each target and intended as a guide only.

The blue line in the charts represent the percentage of students achieving expected growth (between NAPLAN 3 to 5 or between NAPLAN 7 to 9) each year. The baseline is displayed as a short black line. The lower and upper bounds of the agreed target and the calculated trajectories are displayed in red and green respectively.

Note on trajectories

The trajectories are an indication of possible progress towards each target and intended as a guide only. They are calculated using the total improvement required to meet the target and spreading this across the full timeframe. Actual progress might not be linear and may exceed the proposed trajectory or meet the target sooner than required.
