Learning Matters

Naplan Assessment ( Yr 3 & 5)

The National Assessment Program – Literacy and Numeracy (NAPLAN) for Years 3 & 5 students are fast approaching. They will be held between 15-27 March, 2024.

 

NAPLAN tests assess student knowledge and skills in Writing, Reading, Conventions of Language (spelling, grammar and punctuation) and Numeracy. The results of the tests provide information for students, parents, teachers and principals which can be used to improve student achievement.

 

All schools in Australia are expected to deliver the tests online. (i.e., our students will complete the tests utilising their ipads). *Please note that the Year 3 writing test will continue to be a pen and paper assessment.

 

If you have any concerns about your child participating in the Online Naplan Assessments please discuss these with his/her classroom teacher. Extra support/ adjustments can be arranged for students with a disability if they meet the criteria.

 

* Please note that parents are required to sign a formal exemption or withdrawal form if their child is not participating in these online Assessments.
