International Schools’ Assessment (ISA) Results, assessing against International standards

All students in Years 3 to 10 complete the annual International Schools’ Assessment tests. These assessments are set and marked externally by the Australian Council for Educational Research (ACER). More than 73,000 students in over 340 schools around the world complete the assessments; please click the following link to see the full list of schools: https://www.acer.edu.au/files/ISA_Participating_Schools_2014-15.pdf

AISM uses the ISA data collected each year to monitor individual student and cohort data so that we can adjust our teaching to address any identified areas of need in terms of developing transdisciplinary skills.  In comparing successive years we are very excited to report that our students have improved in almost all areas, across all year levels, in addition to scoring results that place them well ahead of their international peers.

Please see below the table outlining our outstanding results.

Note:
Similar = average of schools with students from statistically similar socio-educational backgrounds
