National Assessment Programme Literacy and Numeracy (NAPLAN)
(formerly known as Basic Skills Test)

The Department of Education and Training oversees NAPLAN for students in Year 3 and Year 5.  The programme provides students, teachers and parents/guardians with information about what students know and can do in the areas of literacy and numeracy.

These assessments provide valuable data to parents, teachers and schools. They complement other school assessment and details specific areas of strength and weakness. Teachers are expected to analyse the data and plan learning programmes to address areas of weakness (for individuals and groups).

NAPLAN reflects the child’s entire learning from Kindergarten and is therefore relevant to all teachers.
