What is NAPLAN?
NAPLAN is the National Assessment Program – Literacy and Numeracy, a standardised test developed to test students in school Years 3, 5, 7, 9 from ALL schools, on the fundamental literacy and numeracy skills that every student needs to succeed in school and beyond.
Furthermore, it assesses students’ skills in reading, writing, language conventions (spelling, grammar, and punctuation), and numeracy. The test results are used to measure individual and collective student performance, as well as to inform school and government education policies.
Is it essential to prepare for NAPLAN?
Whether NAPLAN preparation is essential depends on individual perspectives and circumstances. Some argue that NAPLAN preparation can help students become more familiar with the test format and question types, reducing anxiety and increasing their confidence, leading to better performance.
Others believe that excessive focus on NAPLAN preparation can divert attention from more meaningful and authentic learning experiences. Ultimately, it’s up to each student and their families to determine the level of preparation that is best for them.
When is NAPLAN relevant?
During a child’s natural transition from primary to high school.
To guide placements in future primary or high school classes.
To identify students who are underperforming and need of extra help.
