Schools that had higher socio-economic status as measured by the schools' ICSEA
scores had more positive student survey ratings across seven dimensions of the student survey with only Career Goals showing no significant difference by SES (see Table 3).
(1) Index of Community Socio-educational Advantage (ICSEA
) is a scale of socio-educational advantage.
Some of these differences can be measured via the Australian Government's Index of Community Socio Economic Advantage (ICSEA
) where the average value for a school is 1,000.
Thus, we employed nonparametric tests, Kendall's tau-b and biserial correlations (Field, 2009) to examine relationships between ESM and demographic variables (gender, age, grade, presence of additional disability, vision level, and ICSEA
) and PSSM score.
Commencing in 2009, the program was based on a community partnership model with 19 low ICSEA
secondary schools in Perth that had large populations of LSES, Indigenous and refugee students and six secondary schools in the Pilbara region (3), all more than 1,000kms from Perth.

The purpose of the Research and Mapping for MCEECDYA Project: Student Academic Engagement was to examine the characteristics of schools with a low Index of Community Socio-Educational Advantage (ICSEA
) from all jurisdictions that were identified to be making a difference to student academic and to identify the key drivers and characteristics of successful models of practice for increasing and sustaining student academic engagement.
