REACH Assessments (formerly ICAS)


EHPS has previously partnered with UNSW Global to offer its annual ICAS Assessments for Years 3 to 6. With the introduction of Reach Assessments in 2019, we have identified that these assessments will provide us with the most comprehensive view of student learning, and will therefore replace ICAS in our assessment strategy. Please be assured that the impact of this change will be minimal, and we will continue to receive the same benefits from Reach Assessments that we did from ICAS. In previous years ICAS have been paper assessments, however the Reach Assessments will be entirely online. The dates for the online Reach Assessments will be:

SUBJECT OFFICIAL SITTING DATES PARTICIPATION PRICE
Science 27th to 31st May 2019 $10
English 29th July to 2nd August 2019 $10
Mathematics 5th to 9th August 2019 $10

Students are not able to sit the tests outside of the official sitting dates. Information, including the permission form, was published on the Parent Portal on Compass. The permission form along with payment was due no later than Monday 13th May.

Refer any queries to the REACH Coordinator, Alexandra O'Connor.
