South Grafton High School has adopted the world’s leading assessment program, ICAS

ICAS is the most comprehensive educational assessment program available and it will allow our students to be the best they can be.

Amongst the many assessments available, we have chosen ICAS because it offers:

  • Assessments covering the largest number of skill areas¾English, Mathematics, Science, Writing, Spelling and Digital Technologies

  • Detailed reports that allow us to target our teaching to address student weaknesses
  • Longitudinal data that allows us to track year-on-year progression and drive our school forward.

 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
  • Student development over time.

Participating in ICAS helps students:

  • Identify which skills are their strongest
  • Be aware of the skills they could work on in order to improve
  • Track progress over time
  • Understand how they compare with other students within their school and region
  • Gain valuable experience in taking international assessments
