Benefits

ICAS is the most powerful diagnostic tool available to help schools and parents plan for the road ahead. It gives teachers and parents deep insight into the true capabilities of students – assessing the higher order thinking and problem-solving skills needed for success in:

  • English
  • Mathematics
  • Science
  • Digital Technologies

Every year, thousands of schools participate in ICAS, giving an international benchmark that can be relied upon.

Students in over 20 countries are tapping into ICAS to rack and enhance performance. Importantly, they are doing this without the stress of additional study; ICAS does not assess how well a student remembers what they have been taught, it assesses the skills that underpin curricula internationally.

ICAS’s rich diagnostic reports given to students and schools, are its unique advantage, made ever more valuable because of ICAS’s long history of data collection.

Schools/Teachers

ICAS’s rich diagnostic reports provide schools/teachers powerful insights into:

  • Where individual students are succeeding and where they may need extra focus
  • Performances across year levels, classes and other subgroups
  • Strengths and weaknesses at a whole school, grade and class level
  • Student performance in comparison to peers nationally and internationally
  • Student progress over time.
Parents/Students

ICAS reports enable students/parents to:

  • Identify skill areas to be worked on, either for remediation or skill development
  • See the answer the child has given to each question, as well as the correct answer
  • Track educational performance as the child moves through school
  • Obtain an independent, external view of how the child is performing
