NAPLAN 2017: Full results for every state and territory

NAPLAN 2017 results released

Preliminary NAPLAN scores show mixed results, with only marginal improvement in student outcomes across the board.

The latest National Assessment Program – Literacy and Numeracy (NAPLAN) preliminary summary results have attracted early criticism after revealing only a slight improvement in student outcomes since the test was first introduced a decade ago.

Reading and numeracy scores across the country improved by just 0.72% and 0.81% respectively since 2016, while writing scores revealed a decline of 0.55%.

In NSW, nearly 70% of Year 9 students will be forced to re-sit one of their exams after failing to achieve the state government’s minimum Band 8 requirement in order to sit the HSC. Thousands of students will now need to pass a further online test in reading, writing or numeracy in order to qualify.

Despite this, the overall trend continues to be positive, with over 90% of students meeting the national minimum standard.

Education and training minister Simon Birmingham has called the results a “mixed bag,” arguing the need for a re-focus on policy improvements around quality teaching and education programs.

“With truly needs-based funding in place that boosts per student assistance by an extra $2,300 a year on average, schools and teachers will have the support they need as well as resources they can use to focus on the programs that are best suited to their students.”
