2013 NAPLAN Summary Report 2

The Summary Report provides nationally comparable data for the 2013 national and state/territory results for each year level (3, 5, 7 and 9) and for each test domain (reading, writing, spelling, grammar and punctuation, and numeracy). It also gives comparisons of national and state/territory achievement in each year and test domain between 2008 (2011 for persuasive writing) to 2013 and 2012 to 2013.
Key findings from the 2013 Summary Report include:
  • Overall student achievement at state/territory levels has remained stable across 2012-2013.
  • There has been a moderate increase in performance in Year 5 Reading compared to the first year of  NAPLAN data in 2008. This builds on the changes that we have seen in Year 3 Reading in recent years.
  • The moderate overall improvement that we have seen in Reading in recent years continues nationally when we compare this year’s results with 2008.
Robert Randall, Chief Executive Officer of ACARA said today, These results give a crucial first look at how our students performed in this year’s NAPLAN assessments, which are an important tool to help improve student learning. I am pleased with the identified moderate increase in performance in Year 5 reading."
