NAPLAN, an assessment of literacy and numeracy, is undertaken annually by all Years 3, 5, 7 and 9 students throughout Australia. NAPLAN was first administered in 2008 as a paper test program.

In 2018, transition to the NAPLAN online assessment program commenced. The NAPLAN online tests use a tailored test design, where students answer an initial set of questions and are then directed to subsequent sets of questions, either more challenging or less challenging, based on the accuracy of their previous responses. The use of the computer-based environment enables a wider range of question types, encourages broader levels of engagement, and produces results that more accurately reflect students’ skills and knowledge, as measured in the assessments.

Since 2022, all schools have participated in the online NAPLAN assessments, except for a very small number of schools delivering an Authority-approved alternative curriculum. These schools will continue with alternative format (paper) testing.

Detailed information about the online NAPLAN assessment, including a public demonstration site, is available on the ACARA National Assessment Program website at https://www.nap.edu.au/home opens in new window.
