NAPLAN Testing 5/5/21


Next week, Year 3 and Year 5 students will participate in NAPLAN. With the exception of Year 3 Writing, NAPLAN will be completed online. Students will be familiar with online learning platforms. At Kapinara NAPLAN is viewed as one of a number of assessments that provide us with information about what children know and can apply. A brochure was sent home last term with students in Year 3 and Year 5. A schedule of the testing is detailed below.

Ensuring children are ‘ready for NAPLAN’ should be like any other day – being ready for school and ready for learning is about having a good night’s sleep, eating a healthy breakfast and arriving at school in time to be organised for the day. Like any other day and any other task, the expectation is simply that you ‘do your best’.
