Students in Year 3 and Year 5 participate in the National Assessment Program - Literacy and Numeracy (NAPLAN) in May each year. 

Students are assessed using common national tests in Reading, Writing, Language Conventions (Spelling, Grammar and Punctuation) and Numeracy.

NAPLAN tests broadly reflect aspects of literacy and numeracy common to curriculums in all States and Territories. The types of test formats and questions are chosen so that they are familiar to teachers and students across Australia.

The school and parents are provided with a written report in late Term 3.

The data of all students is analyzed by the school to inform learning and teaching, to focus on professional learning and develops targets for improvement.

Federal, state and territory education ministers have agreed that NAPLAN will move online over a two-to-three year period. This means moving NAPLAN from the current paper-based tests to computer-based assessments. The transition to NAPLAN online will commence from 2018. 

NAPLAN Online will provide better assessment, more precise results and faster turnaround of information. The assessments can run through a real-time internet connection or onscreen without an internet connection.

NAPLAN Online features ‘tailored testing’ which gives students questions that are more suited to their ability – resulting in better assessment and more precise results. Watch ACARA’s video about how tailored testing will feature in NAPLAN Online:
