POP continues to excel in NAPLAN testing

Prince of Peace Lutheran College students have outperformed the Queensland and National averages in all year levels and all areas of assessment in 2016 NAPLAN testing.

Year 3 and Year 5 results have shown improvements over 2015 results, with one hundred per cent of Year 3 students outperforming State and National averages in all testing categories.

“NAPLAN data allows the College to shape educational programs as we consistently look to improve educational outcomes,” said Head of College Phil Hulland.

“The 2016 NAPLAN results are very strong results for the College, particularly as we pride ourselves on being an inclusive, non-selective school with high student participation in NAPLAN testing,” Mr Hulland said.

National Assessment Program – Literacy and Numeracy (NAPLAN) testing is conducted nationally, and assesses the skills of all students in Years 3, 5, 7 and 9 in reading, writing, language conventions (spelling and grammar) and numeracy. NAPLAN provides a measure of how students are performing against national standards.
