Over the next two weeks our Years 3, 5, 7 & 9 students along with 1.2 million other students Australia-wide will be sitting their NAPLAN tests. NAPLAN is an assessment program designed to test the literacy and numeracy capabilities of students at various stages of their educational journey.
These standardised tests assess students’ reading, writing, language (spelling, grammar and punctuation) and numeracy and are administered by the Australian Curriculum, Assessment and Reporting Authority (ACARA).
NAPLAN tests are designed to be carried out during the same testing window across Australia. For the first time, apart from the Year 3 writing task, all NAPLAN tests will be taken online as opposed to written this year.
A reminder to all of our superstar students: Remember, there is no one way to ‘test’ all of the wonderful things that make you, YOU!
