This year, during a two-week window from 11 - 21 May, our Yrs 3 and 5 students will be participating in 2021 NAPLAN Online. NAPLAN (National Assessment Program, Literacy and Numeracy) assesses literacy and numeracy skills that students are already learning at school in a nationwide standardised format and timeframe. On its own, NAPLAN is not a series of tests that can be studied for and students are not expected to do so. NAPLAN is just one aspect of a school’s assessment and reporting process – it does not replace ongoing assessments made by teachers about student performance; however, students and parents may use individual results to discuss progress with teachers.
The timetable for NAPLAN tests here at St Rita’s is included in our latest newsletter.:
