This year we are once again preparing to undertake the National Assessment Program – Literacy and Numeracy (NAPLAN) as an online, computer-based assessment. All assessments will be completed on laptops apart from the Year 3 writing component, which will be handwritten by those students.
On Thursday 24th March, we will be conducting a NAPLAN Online National Practice Test with selected classes from Year 3 to 6. Students will participate in a 45 minute writing assessment or answer a set of numeracy, language convention and reading questions. The purpose of the practice test is to confirm our school's ICT capacity and the logistics of administering NAPLAN Online during Term 2. It will not be used as an assessment of children's literacy and numeracy skills.
The official NAPLAN Online assessments for all students in Years 3 and 5 will be held between 10th and 20th May, 2022.
Further information about NAPLAN online and the public demonstration site can be found at www.nap.edu.au . Participating classes will have an opportunity to become familiar with the public demonstration site prior to the practice test.
