Achievement and learning progress of St Brigid's students are measured through internal and externally-sourced assessments. Data from these assessments are used to improve student learning outcomes.
St Brigid's School also applies a variety of diagnostic assessments of student achievements - including the Australian Council for Educational Research (ACER) Progressive Achievement Tests to manage and maintain positive learning outcomes.
NAPLAN (National Assessment Program – Literacy and Numeracy)
Tests are held annually in mid-March to test the proficiency of Year 3 and 5 students in reading, writing, spelling, numeracy, grammar and punctuation.
See the NAPLAN website for test dates and information to help you support your child.
The Early Years Assessment (Literacy) and Early Years Numeracy Observation Assessment programs
Both programs are developed by Catholic Education South Australia (CESA) and run at St Brigid's School to help identify our students' literacy and numeracy capabilities at an early stage of their development. The literacy assessment is available for students in their fifth term, while the numeracy assessment is available in their first two years.
