 The webinars will focus on the interpretation of results from both NAPLAN online and paper tests.

They will cover:

  • an explanation of the NAPLAN Online tailored branched test design
  • a review of some of the most relevant reports in the VCAA Data Service
  • a demonstration and discussion of the types of reports specifically developed for NAPLAN online tests
  • an overview of how to access the Student and School Summary Report (SSSR) and how to interpret it.

The sessions will highlight whole school improvement and focus on analysis of data to inform classroom practice, student progress, curriculum delivery and school policy and program development. There will be opportunities for participants to reflect on their own school’s data and to seek clarification regarding interpretation of this, either through the chat function and breakout rooms or through pre-prepared questions. For paper schools, access to a demonstration site will be provided when exploring the online reports.
