ICAS Competitions 2020

Stanmore Public School ICAS 2020

ICAS Assessments are online assessments, designed to recognise and reward academic excellence. The tests are optional and students can opt for as many tests as desired. Due to the impacts of COVID-19, we are sorry for the short turnaround in information and payment cut offs. 

The tests will be held in the morning before school so it will not impact day-to-day learning. Students will be expected to meet teachers at 7:50am in 4P/4T on the dates of their selected tests. Extra time will not be given to students who arrive late. ICAS assessments are based on the curricula for the relevant year. Students are asked to demonstrate a deeper, integrated, and thorough level of learning. 

This year ICAS testing will be implemented online. The testing will take place in the morning on the dates below:

SubjectTest Date
ICAS Digital TechnologiesMonday 24th August 2020
ICAS ScienceMonday 17th August 2020
ICAS Spelling BeeMonday 31st August 2020
ICAS EnglishMonday 24th August 2020
ICAS MathematicsMonday 31st August 2020

The move to the online format means that each child participating in the testing will need to have access to their own personal device (laptop, iPad, tablet, etc) to access the test.

If sitting the ICAS Spelling, please have the Janison Replay browser installed prior to the date.

In addition the device must meet minimum requirements specified by ICAS to be used.
