NAPLAN Online Update

10/10/2018

NAPLAN Online update

Many Queensland state schools are currently undertaking training activities in preparation for NAPLAN Online.
 
To help schools prepare for NAPLAN Online, our school will participate in a School Readiness Test (SRT) from 8 to 26 October 2018.
 
The SRT is a familiarisation activity to help confirm each school’s technical, student and staff readiness, and will help our school prepare for a transition to NAPLAN Online.
 
It is not an assessment of student ability and there will be no reporting of student test results.
 
The SRT provides two tests that take approximately 40 minutes to complete: a writing test for Years 5, 7 and 9 and an omnibus test for Years 3, 5, 7 and 9.
 
The collective learnings of Queensland schools taking part in the SRT will help transitioning schools to have positive experiences with NAPLAN Online.
 
The NAPLAN Online SRT is delivered to students using a locked-down browser so that students cannot access the internet or spell checkers while testing. Interested families can view the technical requirements on the Australian Curriculum, Assessment and Reporting Authority’s (ACARA) assessment platform website: https://www.assessform.edu.au/layouts/Technology/Overview.aspx
 
NAPLAN Online will provide a better assessment for all, more precise results and faster turnaround of information. It will:
·         Feature tailored testing which gives students questions that are more suited to their ability resulting in better assessment and more precise results.
·         Provide a more engaging test experience for students.
·         Allow test results to be available within three weeks so teachers can identify learning priorities and meet individual student needs early.  
 
Parents and carers can also familiarise themselves with the NAPLAN Online platform by using the public demonstration site available at: www.nap.edu.au/online-assessment/naplan-online/naplan-online-public-demonstration-site  .  
 
Further information about NAPLAN Online including frequently asked questions and answers are available at: www.nap.edu.au/online-assessment/naplan-online.
 
We will keep you up-to-date with how the training is progressing, but if there’s anything you need in the meantime you can contact the principal on ph: 54244111.
