NAPLAN

​​​​​​​​​​​This year, between 10 and 20 May, our school will be doing NAPLAN Online

NAPLAN assesses literacy and numeracy skills that students are already learning at school.

In readiness for the NAPLAN tests in May our school will also be involved in a number of practice sessions in late Term 1 and early Term 2.

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. 

Read the NAPLAN Online in​formation brochure for p​arents and carers. To see the format of the online tests, visit the public dem​onstration site​.

Over the coming weeks all students in Year 3, 5, 7 and 9 will be asked to ensure:

  • their laptop device is fully charged, at school each day and joined to the College network
  • that the device that will be used for testing meets the minimum requirements (general and   technical).
  • that the 2022 Locked Down Browser (LDB) is loaded onto their device  (advice will be provided by the school in class and via student email)

  • that they have working wired earphones or headphones for all tests including practice tests.
  • that they are accessing practice test items to ensure they are able to use the online tools associated with the test.

Kawana Waters State College will use the online format for Tests except for the Year 3 Writing Test.​

One of the main benefits of NAPLAN Online is that it uses tailored (or adaptive) testing. This means that students receive questions better suited to their abilities, giving them more opportunity to demonstrate what they know and can do.
