Platforms for Accessing Government School Data such as NAPLAN Results

Response to this request is long overdue. By law, under all circumstances, NT Department of Education should have responded by now (details). You can complain by requesting an internal review.

Dear NT Department of Education,

I would like to better understand how government schools in the Northern Territory can access their school's respective NAPLAN results, what specific NAPLAN data is provided to the schools and how the NAPLAN data is displayed.

1. Platforms to Access NAPLAN Data for Government Schools in the Northern Territory:
I would like to know what platform the Northern Territory Department of Education and Training makes available for their government schools (primary and secondary) to access their NAPLAN data, including any websites, types of personalised documents sent to individual schools, and specific software programs. E.g. In NSW, schools have access to their data on a website called, "NSW Schools Online" and a "Scout Reports" tool which is also used in the ACT.

2. Specific Data Disclosed:
I would like to know what data fields are disclosed in the reporting of NAPLAN data to individual government schools in the Northern Territory. E.g. Name, School, Participation Code, Proficiency Standard, Scaled Score, Student Date of Birth, School Postcode etc. I would like to know all data fields given to the schools in the Northern Territory.

3. Data Displays:
Finally, I would like to know how the data is displayed when given to the schools. E.g. Is the data in the format of a spreadsheet? A series of tables? Infographics such as pie charts, box and whisker plots, bar graphs etc? All of the above? A combination of the above display methods?

Thank you very much for taking the time to read through my FOI request and I look forward to hearing back from you.

Yours faithfully,
Eric Bessiris
