My School Website

(Question No. 402)


Mr Pyne asked the Minister for School Education, Early Childhood and Youth, in writing, on 31 May 2011:

In respect of the Australian Curriculum and Assessment Reporting Authority Update (Issue 18, 22 March 2011) which states that the My School 2.0 website had received 400 000 visits since its launch, (a) how many unique visitors accessed the website, from what state and city, and how many of these were visits to the school finances section, and (b) what is the breakdown on the number of hits by each unique visitor (i) to the first version of the My School website, and My School 2.0, per month since their respective launch dates, and (ii) accessing the first version of the My School website, and My School 2.0, per month since their respective launch dates.


Mr Garrett: The answer to the honourable member's question is as follows:

(a) The My School 2.0 website was launched March 4, 2011. During the period March 4, 2011 to June 9, 2011 there were 862,326 visits, representing 503,801 unique visitors.

These visits include 491,387 views of the school finance pages during the reporting period.

(b) ACARA reports website statistics as page views per visit, rather than hits. This is regarded as more meaningful in terms of usage.

For My School 2.0 since its launch date of March 4, 2011, monthly averages of page views per visit have been as follows:
