National assessment program – ICT literacy years 6 & 10 report 2011

School curriculum Technology Information technology Literacy Australia

This report presents the findings from the National Assessment Program – Information and Communications Technologies (ICT) Literacy conducted under the auspices of the national council of education ministers, the Ministerial Council for Education, Early Childhood Development and Youth Affairs (MCEECDYA), now known as the Standing Council on School Education and Early Childhood (SCCEEC) in 2011.  
It also enables the most recent achievements of students to be compared against those from the previous national assessments of ICT literacy, conducted first in 2005 and again in 2008. In addition, a survey of student access to and use of computers was conducted alongside the ICT Literacy assessment. With assessment results showing that computer use by students had increased considerably over the six years from 2005 to 2011, this survey provides interesting and useful insights into how young people are using their access to new technologies, both in schools and at home.
