In May all Year 7 and 9 students across Australia will take part in the National Assessment Program Literacy and Numeracy (NAPLAN).
NAPLAN is designed to help parents and teachers better judge how Year 7 and 9 students are performing in relation to nationally-agreed standards. As this has become part of our reporting to parent processes, it is anticipated that all students will participate.
NAPLAN Assessments will be conducted in Writing, Language Conventions (spelling, grammar and punctuation), Reading and Numeracy. There are a total of 4 assessments, Writing is the first assessment and it’s results are used to set the appropriate level for the following Literacy assessments.
It is important to attend the Writing test due to it’s significance. Each assessment is approximately one hour in length. Click on the link for further information in the brochure titled 2019 NAPLAN Information for Parents.
The NAPLAN assessments will take place during normal school time in the week commencing 14th May (Week 3, Term 2). At NASHS all Year 7 and 9 students will sit the tests under formal assessment conditions in their classrooms.
Students absent on the assessment day/s will be provided with an opportunity to do the assessment later in that week. Withdrawal and Exemption forms can be found HERE on the website:
These forms need to be submitted to Mrs Terry Bolt (Deputy Principal) by Friday, 22 March
