NAPLAN Data Service reports, this year Victorian schools have been provided with access to scanned images of their students’ NAPLAN writing test responses. The VCAA believes this will assist schools with interpretation of NAPLAN writing results and inform classroom teaching and learning programs. The writing test images are accessible via the NAPLAN Test Administration website, and will be available until Friday 18 September 2015 (end of Term 3).
Details about access to the website and instructions about how to download images have been sent to school principals with the NAPLAN reporting packages.
Please note that schools only have access to images of the writing tests of their own students, and that the images are made available strictly for internal school use.
NAPLAN Data Service reports was made available to schools on Monday 17 August 2015. These reports include all school and state data, and some national data. As in previous years, national data relating to subgroups will be incorporated into the Data Service after the release by ACARA of the final NAPLAN Report later in the year.
Schools must use their own unique login and security password to access their results. Login details and 2015 passwords were issued to schools in August. If a password is lost, the principal should send an email to email@example.com with the words ‘Password Request’ included in the subject line.
The 2015 Reporting Guide is available online, either via a link on the Report Parameters page of the Data Service (see the following screenshot), or from the NAPLAN webpage (under Publications):
Access to these tutorials is available from the menu at the top of every report in the Data Service (see the following screenshot), or via the link that appears in the footer of each report.
