the National Assessment Program-Literacy and Numeracy (NAPLAN) was first undertaken as an online test in Tasmania during 2019. Tasmanian schools will again participate in NAPLAN Online this year.

NAPLAN Online provides better assessment and more precise results. The assessments feature a tailored test design where the questions a student receives will depend on their answers to previous questions.

This year NAPLAN testing will be held in Weeks 2 and 3 of this Term for Year Levels 3, 5, 7 and 9.

NAPLAN assessments include four components: Writing, Numeracy, Conventions of Language and Reading.

The College will receive reports and results for participants following the completion of the NAPLAN Online assessment window. These Individual Student Reports will have the same format as in previous years. This format is used for every student in Australia.

Students should ensure that they bring their laptops fully charged each day in readiness for testing.
