Information for parents
NAPLAN tests are held in May each year for students in Years 3, 5, 7 and 9.
Parents or carers of students who sit for the NAPLAN tests will receive a written report of their child's achievement in August.
The 2016 – 2020 NAPLAN test dates are now available.
NAPLAN student report
The NAPLAN student report will show your child's results in the key areas of reading, writing, language conventions and numeracy. The report will also show the national average, the range of results for the middle 60% of students nationally and your school's average for each test. This means you will be able to compare the performance of your child against other students in the same year of schooling.
The additional student report will list all the questions in each test, along with a brief description of each question. This report will show you which questions your child answered correctly.
A common assessment scale is used on each NAPLAN report so that you can track your child's progress through the years.
It is recommended that you make an appointment with your child's teacher to discuss your child's results and how to interpret the NAPLAN reports.
