Reading results for Years 3 and 5 saw significant gain compared to 2008.
Spelling results for Year 3 saw significant gain compared to 2008.
Grammar/punctuation results for Year 3 saw significant gain compared to 2008.
Numeracy results for Year 5 saw significant gain compared to 2008.
Writing results for Years 7 and 9 saw a significant decrease since 2011 (the year from which results can be compared with for this domain).
“There have been some significant gains in some domains in each state and territory, with Western Australia and Queensland standing out more than others,” says Chief Executive Officer of the Australian Curriculum, Assessment and Reporting Authority, Robert Randall.
