Reach student benchmarking and progression monitoring
Identify gaps in your students’ knowledge and fine-tune your teaching to fill them
From the creators of ICAS, Reach is a suite of annual online benchmarking assessments for Year 2 to Year 10 students. It gives you accurate, objective data on your students’ progression year on year, allowing you to tailor your teaching and help them fulfil their learning potential.
Reach covers seven literacy and STEM subjects. Its questions are created by seasoned teachers, psychometricians and test developers, drawing on decades of rigour and expertise.
Reach assessments are run simultaneously across Australia, New Zealand and other countries across the world, with unique test dates for each subject across two flexible windows.

Reach is an annual benchmarking assessment and ICAS is a competition.
Reach is a great assessment that provides a wide range of questions across all scientific skills. The questions can be accessed by all students, thereby increasing the confidence in student ability while providing a small range of very challenging questions for the highly gifted. The assessment data available with Reach results allow my teachers to reflect on their teaching practice and make modifications. This provides students greater depth in learning the science concepts while reducing teacher load in writing assessment items. Science Reach is therefore incorporated as a compulsory assessment for Year 7 to 10 at Normanhurst Boys High.
