NAPLAN 2018 (Issue 5 2018)

Written on the 5 April 2018

Students in Years 3, 5, 7 and 9 in schools across Australia will participate in national literacy and numeracy tests in May. At Sacred Heart, the tests will occur on Tuesday 15 May, Wednesday 16 May, Thursday 17 May and Friday 18 May. The tests - the National Assessment Program: Literacy and Numeracy (NAPLAN), are a government requirement. They provide students, teachers and parents with specific information about what students know and can do in some aspects of literacy and numeracy.

It is anticipated that all students will participate in the tests. If you feel you child may require any form of adjustment to enable them to access the NAPLAN tests, please contact Leanne Carr at Marymount Campus or Sean Perry at Middle School to discuss possible provisions that could be made to ensure your child is catered for.

  • NAPLAN tests are administered simultaneously in all schools across Australia.
  • The aspects of literacy assessed are: reading, writing and conventions of language (including spelling, punctuation and grammar).
  • The aspects of numeracy assessed are: number, algebra, function and pattern, measurement, chance and data, and space.
  • Students do not have to learn specific skills for NAPLAN tests.
  • Students have an opportunity to become familiar with the NAPLAN tests and with ways of showing their answers to questions before they do the tests.
  • NAPLAN individual student reports are expected to be ready for distribution to parents/caregivers during September.

If you have any questions regarding the NAPLAN tests, please direct them to us prior to Monday 7 May. If we do not hear from you, the College will be expecting your child to attend and complete the tests from 15-18 May.
