ICAS

15/03/2017
It is that time of year when we offer the opportunity to Years 3-6 students to take part in ICAS testing.  Please carefully read the information below to inform your decision about whether or not to register your child/children for one, two or three of the assessments.
 

The International Competitions and Assessments for Schools (ICAS) is an independent, quality skills-based assessment program which rewards and recognises achievement.  ICAS gives you insights into your child’s performance across English, Mathematics and Science.  ICAS (sometimes referred to as the UNSW assessments) has been developed by Educational Assessment Australia (EAA) since 1981.

Each student receives:

  • an engaging and challenging full-colour test booklet

  • an individual diagnostic report highlighting strengths and weaknesses and year to year progression

  • login details to access their online results which can be analysed and downloaded

  • a High Distinction, Distinction, Credit, Merit or Participation Certificate acknowledging their level of achievement

  • the chance to receive an individually-engraved UNSW medal for the highest scoring student in each year level for each subject.

To learn more about ICAS go to www.eaa.unsw.edu.au/icas/about  Remember, EAA has some very helpful tools to help your child prepare.  You can access practice assessments at www.eaa.unsw.edu.au/icas/preparation
