Standard of Educational Achievement

Educational Achievement

The Department of Education has outlined their levels of achievement appropriate for each year level. If you’ve ever wondered what reading level is appropriate for Year 1 standard, or what your student/child’s PAT-R or Maths score means, this document should be of interest. Features of note:

  • The Department of Education aims for each student/child to process and achieve at or above their appropriate year level
  • In a curriculum context, the aim is to achieve at least a “C” level for each Learning Area of the Australian Curriculum
  • For reading, particular reading levels are articulated for Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 (page 2 of the Standard of Educational Achievement document)
  • For NAPLAN, proficiency bands are outlined for Year 3, 5 and 7 students (results from 2018 NAPLAN assessments will be available in Term 3)
  • For PAT-R Comprehension and Math tests, scale scores are outlined for Year levels 3-7
