The My School2020欧洲杯娱乐官网 website provides information that supports national transparency and accountability of Australia’s school education system through publication of nationally consistent school-level data. It complements other reporting measures aimed at ensuring schools and school systems are accountable to parents and to the broader community.
NAPLAN student progress information, published on My School2020欧洲杯娱乐官网, provides a measure of a school’s impact on its students’ literacy and numeracy outcomes – the difference schools have made to their students’ learning between one NAPLAN test and the next, two years later.
My School enables a school’s NAPLAN results to be compared with results of students who have a ‘similar background’. A school’s ‘student background’ takes account of the parental education levels and employment types, geographic location and the Indigenous status of its students.
My School helps parents have informed discussions with teachers and schools, and make informed decisions about their child’s education, but it should not replace visiting schools and speaking to teachers and principals to get an understanding of what each school offers its students. A child’s teacher will have the best insight into educational progress.
The inclusion of data about how schools perform in NAPLAN provides information on only one aspect of school performance and does not measure overall school quality.
The My School website has been updated in 2020 to reflect changes agreed by education ministers following a review of My School in 2019. The changes will help parents see how a school is performing in supporting student progress (i.e. improving literacy and numeracy outcomes over the two years since the previous NAPLAN tests), and less on ‘school versus school’ comparisons that only take account of overall levels of achievement.

There are no league tables on My School. This is not the purpose of My School. This website has NAPLAN data for the last six years, which allows us to see how a school is doing in the important areas of literacy and numeracy and how a school has performed over time.
My School is run by the Australian Curriculum, Assessment and Reporting Authority (ACARA). ACARA is an independent authority accountable to the Education Council comprising the education ministers of the nine governments in our federation (the Commonwealth, and the states and territories).
2020欧洲杯娱乐官网ACARA is responsible for collecting and reporting data on Australia’s schools, running the National Assessment Program (which includes NAPLAN) and other assessments, and the Australian Curriculum.
