Early NAPLAN results today
NAPLAN scores will be coming out earlier than ever with individual reports being posted to schools today.
The scores are coming out less than three months after students across Queensland sat the benchmark literacy and numeracy tests.
But the results, coming out three weeks earlier than last year, are expected to come out even earlier from 2017 with the introduction of online testing.
Education Minister Kate Jones said families would benefit from receiving the results earlier.
“Receiving NAPLAN results earlier means parents and teachers will be able to identify students’ individual strengths and start to make changes to improve their results sooner,” Ms Jones said.
“Families can use individual results to discuss their child’s progress with teachers ( and) teachers can use NAPLAN results with other assessment information to help them better identify the students who require greater challenges or additional support.”
She said the NAPLAN data would help check if Queensland students were meeting national standards, and reiterated a commitment to fund an extra 875 teachers.
