[WA] Important Message about 2021 NAPLAN TEST

In 2021 the National Assessment Program – Literacy and Numeracy NAPLAN will be conducted for all students in Years 3, 5, 7 and 9 in all government and non-government schools. This program, which will be run in all States and Territories of Australia, will assess literacy and numeracy skills of all students. It is important to note that your child’s results will be used by schools over the coming years to make important decisions about their learning.

The Australian Curriculum, Assessment and Reporting Authority (ACARA) is working towards moving NAPLAN online, this will allow students to complete NAPLAN tests using an electronic device. Over 100 schools in Western Australia will transit to NAPLAN online. All Western Australian schools as well as schools across Australia will participate in NAPLAN Online.

The NAPLAN will provide an important measure of how students are performing in the area of reading, writing, spelling and numeracy. It allows you to:

Compare your child’s progress in relation to the benchmark.

Compare your child’s achievement with other students, as well as the performance of all schools in Australia. For more information please refer http://www.myschool.com.au
