Australian Institute of Health and Welfare
This report presents a snapshot of the academic performance of Australian children in the care of child protection services in 2013. Findings are based on the linkage of data from the Child Protection National Minimum Data Set and the National Assessment Program--Literacy and Numeracy. This report shows that the proportion of children in care meeting the national minimum standards (NMS) for literacy and numeracy varied (ranging from 44% to 83% across assessment domains and year levels). The following are appended: (1) Detailed tables; (2) Data linkage process; (3) Statistical methods; and (4) NAPLAN background. A glossary is included. [The former Standing Council on Community and Disability Services Advisory Council (SCCDSAC) provided funding for this project.]
