ICAS will provide our school with powerful insights into:
- Where individual students are succeeding and where they may need extra focus
- Performance across year levels, classes and other subgroups
- Strengths and areas for improvement at whole school, grade and class levels
- Student performance in comparison to peers nationally and internationally
