What Do They Say About Us?

“With the last ICAS done today I am pleased to say it all went off without a hitch! Thanks heaps for all your help … look forward to doing this all again next year”

_K. Lane,

Head of Curriculum - Upper Years - Springfield Central State School
"ICAS was a very rewarding experience for our students. The process of payment, registration and students participating in the online test went very smoothly. I'd highly recommend this extra curriculum activity to all schools"

_A. Meoli,

ICAS Coordinator - St Patrick's Primary School, Guildford
“ICAS has been a dream ride for us this year. We had fantastic communication from the NZ ICAS consultant right from the start. We enrolled the children with ease, and printed their one-time codes for use later on. Connecting to the competition on the day was effortless. The children found the whole experience intellectually challenging, rewarding and stress-free. It was fantastic to see the online results come back within a week or so of the competition. The end result has been a rich and rewarding competition for our students. Parents love the feedback, and the opportunity for children to be rewarded for academic talent is priceless. Congratulations to ICAS Assessments on a beautifully written competition, which has always been of the very highest standard. It has brought another ray of sunshine to our school year”

_B. Reid,

Matua School ICAS Co-ordinator - Tauranga, New Zealand
“Congratulations on such a fast turn around and very useful report analysis. Being a school co-ordinator, I was very impressed with the level of detail and data breakdown in the comprehensive and year group reports. Thank you ICAS Assessments.”

_M. Gindy,

Leader of Diverse Learning - Regents Park Christian School NSW
ICAS Science provides valuable data that identifies areas of growth and development in science knowledge and skills. The style of questions also encourages critical thinking. For the teachers: Identify areas for improvement, as well as areas of growth. For the students: practice at completing a set of questions under exam conditions, practice answering multiple choice questions, a chance to challenge themselves, an opportunity to think critically and apply information from outside their specialty. Online results portal is very easy to use, and is filterable which makes your search even quicker. Data from previous years is stored there too so it makes comparisons from year to year very quick and easy.

_C. Spiteri,

Head of Science - Avila College
