The 2013 NAPLAN results for schools were released on Friday. By all measures Jindalee students have scored very well. Our results across all areas have improved significantly. Particularly noticeable is the sea of ‘green’ which indicates we are above the national score. In 2012 across each of the five strands in years three, five and seven scored against the national mean, % of students in the upper two bands and the % of students above the National Minimum Standards, Jindalee had 10 out of 45 scores above. This year we have 30 out of 45 scores above, an amazing achievement. Particular credit is due to year three classes where in each of the strands our school mean score is above our like schools except for grammar and punctuation where it is just one point off. Attached are the comparative tables below for 2012 and 2013. Congratulations to year five where they have scored 100% of students above the NMS in spelling and numeracy, 99% in reading and 98% in writing and grammar.
2013 - 2012 NAPLAN Performance Measures Summarised for Jindalee State School
Along with this year’s excellent results overall, we have also given ourselves room for development in the future. We now have NAPLAN data going back to 2008 with which to compare results of the same group of students in year three, year five and year seven. This will provide us with the trends in performance and allow us to follow these trends. The data will inform us what decisions we need to make about our teaching and learning. Congratulations to staff and students on the excellent results. Once again Jindalee is among the top performing schools in the nation.
