The 2016 NAPLAN results for Victorian students were very similar to those from the past few years.
They showed Victoria as being either first, second or, in a couple of cases, third in reading, writing and numeracy at all year levels compared to the rest of Australia. In every case Victoria was comfortably above the Australian average.
There were one year fluctuations between 2015 and 2016 - some up and some down. The 2016 results were better than 2008 results except in Year 9 reading, Year 3 numeracy and Years 5, 7 and 9 writing.
There were significant improvements from 2008 to 2016 in Years 3 and 5 reading, Year 5 numeracy and Year 3 writing. The only level where there was a significant fall in achievement from 2008 was Year 9 writing.
Our results were excellent again.
