In 2018 NAPLAN began moving from pencil and paper tests to online tests in some states and territories. A small proportion of NSW schools participated in NAPLAN Online in 2018.
NAPLAN will be administered online in 2019. The move to NAPLAN Online means new benefits for your child’s school including better assessment and greater student engagement.
The NAPLAN online test window starts on 14 May 2019 and finishes on 24 May 2019. A more detailed timetable of the test schedule will be provided closer to the date. All tests will be administered online with the exception of Year 3 Writing which will be a pencil and paper test.
NAPLAN assesses the literacy and numeracy skills your child is already learning in school.
Teachers will ensure students are familiar with test formats prior to NAPLAN tests. The best way to support your child through NAPLAN is to encourage them to do the best they can on the day.
