NAPLAN changes from 2023
As you may be aware, 2023 NAPLAN testing will be held from 15 March 2023. There will also be changes to the way that NAPLAN results are reported.The numerical bands (1-10) will be replaced with four proficiency standards for each school level that sits NAPLAN. Parents and carers will receive information about their child’s NAPLAN achievement based on the following 4 levels of achievement:

Strong means that the student is meeting the expectations of the literacy and numeracy skills required for their school level.
The descriptors for each category will make it clear to parents what their child’s literacy and numeracy skills are at the time of NAPLAN testing, and teachers will continue to work with you to meet your child’s needs. NAPLAN will remain one of many useful ways that we assess your child’s learning and support needs.
NAPLAN is one source of information about your child’s academic performance. It is important to maintain a positive and calm approach to the days leading up to these standardised assessments, as well as during the test period.
Have a wonderful week,
