Visible Learning

Visible Learning is based on extensive research conducted by Professor John Hattie into what influences in education have the greatest impact on student learning.   The teachers at Carramar Primary School are using the findings from this research to provide the guiding principles for curriculum delivery in the classroom. 

Helping the students to understand what it means to be a learner has been a focus in 2016.  A set of learner qualities has been developed to describe what an effective learner needs to do. These qualities are reflected in the language used by the teachers to discuss learning and give feedback to the students.
The ant has been a symbol used by the school since it began in 2005. It represents team work and endeavour. This symbol is used as a visual link to the learner qualities for the school community.

Western Australian Curriculum

For information on the curriculum used in Western Australian schools visit the  School Curriculum and Standards Authority  website.

 The K-10 syllabus outline  sets out the curriculum, guiding principles for teaching, learning and assessment and support for teachers in their assessment and reporting of student achievement. 


NAPLAN stands for National Assessment Program – Literacy and NumeracyIt is a literacy and numeracy assessment that students in Years 3, 5, 7 and 9 sit each year. The assessment provides parents and schools with an understanding of how individual students are performing at the time of the tests. NAPLAN is just one aspect of a school’s assessment and reporting process and it does not replace ongoing assessments made by teachers about student performance.

NAPLAN assesses the literacy and numeracy skills that students are learning through the school curriculum and allows parents/carers to see how their child is progressing against national standardsStudents sit assessments in writing, reading, conventions of language (spelling, grammar, and punctuation) and numeracy. These are done online except for Year 3 writing which is on paper.

The tests are tailored (or adaptive), which means that each test presents questions that may be more or less difficult depending on a student’s responses. This helps students remain engaged with the assessment. Tailored testing allows a wider range of student abilities to be assessed and measures student achievement more precisely.
