ICAS refers to the International Competitions and Assessments for Schools. Each year for the past 13 years, PMPS has participated in this program. ICAS is a competition and is designed to challenge student ability beyond NAPLAN capabilities. Each year, students across Australia and several countries throughout the world, participate in ICAS. PMPS participates in the English and Mathematics tests. Each test is administered under strict exam conditions. High achieving students are recognised through certificates of Credit, Distinction and High Distinction. Regardless of whether or not your child receives a certificate, all students and their families can use their data to highlight strengths and identify areas of improvement. PMPS uses this data in conjunction with NAPLAN data to identify school based areas of strength and identify areas for improvement.
