2017 INTERNATIONAL COMPETITIONS AND ASSESSMENTS FOR SCHOOLS (ICAS)
Dear Parents and Guardians,
In our rapidly changing world, it is becoming more and more important for our children to develop
strong skills as they progress through their education.
ICAS provides an opportunity for students in Years 2 to 12 (please note that the year level eligibility for each test differs) 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 English, Mathematics, Science, Spelling and Writing. The tests are an excellent preparation for national tests and the student report is useful for highlighting your childs strengths and weaknesses.
In 2017, Navigator College will be offering students the opportunity to participate in a number of the ICAS competitions and assessments.
