2018 Naplan online

NAPLAN starts on Tuesday 15 May. Over a million Year 3, 5, 7 and 9 students across the country will participate in the annual literacy and numeracy assessments.

NAPLAN is a point-in-time assessment to help parents see how their child, compared with the rest of Australia’s children, is progressing in the fundamental skills of literacy and numeracy. The information NAPLAN provides supports conversations between parents, teachers and schools, working together to help children achieve their full potential.

In 2018, Waverley’s Year 5, 7 and 9 students will sit NAPLAN online. The goal of the Australian Curriculum, Assessment and Reporting Authority (ACARA)  is to have all students undertake NAPLAN online by 2020.

Watch a video that explains the substantial benefits NAPLAN Online provides for students and teachers including more precise information and a more engaging experience.
