2016 OUTSTANDING NAPLAN RESULTS

2016 OUTSTANDING NAPLAN RESULTS
Congratulations to our Year 3 and 5 students for their outstanding NAPLAN results, Mossman State School kids have once again performed extremely well on all 5 NAPLAN tests across both year levels. We would like to take this opportunity to acknowledge the outstanding efforts of our Year 3 and Year 5 teachers and our entire teaching and support staff on setting our students up for success with their continued commitment to the Explicit Teaching pedagogy, daily literacy and numeracy consolidations and improved attendance strategies. These strategies have been fine-tuned throughout our school over a number of years and our continued student performance improvements are a testament to their effectiveness. Our data shows we are performing statistically similar to or above the Nation’ or ‘significantly above the Nation’ in all 5 strands of Reading, Writing, Spelling, Grammar & Punctuation and Numeracy in both Year 3 and Year 5. Out of 30 points of data (5 strands, 2 year levels, 3 comparison areas) we achieved statistically similar to or above the Nation in 29 points. This is another outstanding result for our school. It is important to remember though, that while NAPLAN testing is given much focus by the media, it is only one assessment tool we use in making judgements about student performance throughout the year.
