In recent years, NSW independent schools have been able to access their students’ NAPLAN results through the SMART analysis software package hosted by the NSW Department of Education.
The SMART software is unable to be adapted for NAPLAN online reporting. From 2018, NAPLAN data will be made available through Scout instead.
Scout will provide teachers and school leaders with access to their students’ NAPLAN results which have previously been provided through SMART. SMART will still be available but will only hold data up to 2017. Pre 2018 NAPLAN data will also be available on Scout.
Teachers and school leaders will be able to use Scout to review and monitor their students’ assessment results as well as student growth and performance trends.
Further information as well as details of Scout training opportunities will be updated on this page regularly.
