Ranking the Top Performing Schools in PNG

The education department ranks the schools as the top 10 performing schools based on how well the students perform in the exams. Also, the department recognises schools that have signs of improvement over the years. 

A school can rank among the top-performing schools or as the most improved school. 

 Mean Rating Index, MRI,

The department uses what is called the Mean Rating Index, MRI, to convert students' Grades to percentages  (out of 100%) or decimals (out of 1.0). 

In simple terms, the more As (in Grade 12) or Distinctions (in Grade 10) the higher the MRI a school gets. 

The schools are then sorted in order to pick out the top-performing schools in the country.

Most improved schools 

The most improved schools are those that show signs of improvement as compared to their past performances. 

It is a good indicator of improved teaching and learning introduced recently. It is done to acknowledge and recognise a school's achievements.
