NAPLAN Online Practice
17 Mar 2020
Dear parents and carers,
ACT schools will participate in NAPLAN Online testing from 12-22 May 2020.
All students participating in NAPLAN Online 2020 are expected to have done a practice/familiarisation test prior to the May NAPLAN tests. ACT schools undertaking NAPLAN Online this year will participate in a practice/familiarisation test between 23 March and 9 April 2020. The practice test does not assess student performance and has been developed to replace one of the familiarisation activities that schools have traditionally undertaken.
As a parent, you can become familiar with NAPLAN Online tests by visiting the public demonstration site, http://bit.ly/naplanonline. The purpose of the site is to familiarise students with the type of items the students will see on NAPLAN Online and related functionalities. This level of familiarisation is worthwhile to help students understand and be comfortable with the format of the test.
*If your child requires an adjustment to be made to their assessment (added time, movement breaks etc.), we will consult with you prior to the May assessments. During practice/familiarisation phase, I will liaise with your child’s Class Teacher and the Inclusion Teacher. If you would like to discuss this further please contact Rebekah Brown (Inclusion teacher) email@example.com*
As part of undertaking NAPLAN Online, the Education Directorate works closely with the Australian Curriculum, Assessment and Reporting Authority (ACARA) and Education Services Australia (ESA). ESA operates the NAPLAN Online platform which will contain personal information. ACARA will collect anonymised information about each student who takes the test online from the Education Directorate.
