Students will be completing the NAPLAN tests online. This will require them to make sure that their digital device is fully charged for each session, and that they have their headphones with them each day. Headphones will not be provided to students who fail to bring them.

Public demonstration site

Students and parents are able to access a demonstration site (link below) to become familiar with the assessment platform prior to the NAPLAN testing days. This site displays the types of questions and tools available in the online NAPLAN assessment platform.

Student Report:
As a result of the changes, parents and carers will receive earlier, simpler and clearer information about their child’s NAPLAN achievement. Reports will be easier to read and will provide clearer information about how a student is progressing.

The numerical NAPLAN bands and the national minimum standard will be replaced by four levels of achievement. These will give teachers and parents better information about what a student can do.

Levels of Achievement:
• Exceeding
• Strong
• Developing
• Needs Additional Support
