ICAS – INTERNATIONAL COMPETITIONS AND ASSESSMENTS FOR SCHOOLS
ICAS is one of the most highly regarded schools based competition and assessment programs in the world with over 30 years of experience in Australia.
ICAS provides an opportunity for all Years 2-12 students to gain a measure of their own achievement in an external testing situation. It provides teachers, parents and students with comprehensive reporting of results in the areas of Computer Skills, English, Mathematics, Science, Spelling and Writing.
All students receive a certificate and an individual student report indicating which questions they answered correctly and their score compared with the rest of the students tested. The tests are an excellent preparation for National tests and the student report is useful for highlighting your child’s strengths and weaknesses. The certificate and individual student report are also suitable for your child to include in a portfolio.
Each student is rewarded with a certificate of High Distinction, Distinction, Credit or Participation; a great addition to each student’s portfolio.
