2020 OLNA RESULTS
Results from the latest round of OLNA were emailed to parents earlier this term.
The OLNA is an online literacy and numeracy assessment. It is designed to enable students to successfully meet the Western Australian Certificate of Education (WACE) requirement of demonstrating the minimum standard of literacy (reading and writing) and numeracy.
CVC is very pleased with our recent results which show a significant improvement in student pass rates. A summary of our results and the intervention strategies we put in place to ensure students pass, are listed below:
Improvement Trend 2019-2020:
- In 2019 79% (numeracy), 83% (reading) and 82% (writing) of Year 11 students had passed OLNA components. In 2020, these figures are 83%, 87% and 81% respectively.
- In 2019 71% (numeracy), 71% (reading) and 70% (writing) of Year 10 students had passed OLNA components. In 2020, these figures are 73%, 76% and 76% respectively.
Intervention Provided to Students:
- Weekly OLNA study sessions for all Year 12 students for each component they need to pass. These are rotated fortnightly so that students do not miss more than one class a fortnight from their regular timetable.
- Weekly OLNA study sessions for Year 11 students yet to pass numeracy (except students in Foundation Maths).
- Fortnightly OLNA study sessions for Year 11 students yet to pass literacy components (except students in Foundation English & EAL/D classes)
- Individual Student Diagnostic are also sent directly to teachers.
Students who did not achieve Band 8 or higher in their Year 9 NAPLAN are required to sit for the corresponding components of the OLNA. All students are provided with up to six opportunities before the end of Year 12 (March & September from Year 10), to demonstrate the required skills in each component. Once a student has demonstrated the required skill in a component they are not required to sit that component again.
