ICAS in 2017
- Easier access to reports
A dedicated reporting login will be enabled so that more teaching staff will be able to access the detailed diagnostic reports online. This will make it easier for teachers to create custom groups and gain deeper insight into specific student strengths and areas for improvement. The login will only give access to the reporting portal and not to a School’s account. The school’s nominated ICAS Coordinator will administer the login.
- Triangulate data
Triangulating data from a range of sources will be made easier, with each ICAS answer sheet capturing a school-nominated student ID (9 digit numeric). This will help teaching staff obtain a fuller picture of student capabilities.
- Online training
More technical training support will help be available for schools to realise the full benefits of ICAS. In 2017 we will be offering a series of webinars on making the most of ICAS assessments and reports.
