The National Assessment Program - Literacy and Numeracy (NAPLAN) assessments happen every year.
Students in Years 3, 5, 7 and 9 are tested on the fundamental literacy and numeracy skills that every child needs to become successful learners in school and beyond. NAPLAN is a national, consisten measure to determine whether or not students are meeting important educational outcomes.
The best preparation for NAPLAN is teaching and learning the curriculum. Children can be reassured that NAPLAN tests are just one part of their school program and they should simply do the best they can on the day.
