The National Assessment Program – Literacy and Numeracy (NAPLAN) is an annual assessment for students in Years 3, 5, 7 and 9 in Australia.
NAPLAN is a nationwide measure through which parents, teachers, schools, education authorities, governments and the broader community can determine whether or not young Australians are developing the literacy and numeracy skills that provide the critical foundation for other learning and for their productive and rewarding participation in the community.
The assessments are undertaken nationwide, every year, in the second full week in May.
NAPLAN is made up of tests in the four areas; Reading, Writing, Language conventions (spelling, grammar and punctuation), and Numeracy.
In the reading, numeracy and conventions of language tests, questions may be multiple choice, technology- enhanced (such as drag and drop) or require a short-written response. In the writing test, students are expected to write a continuous text.
Being a test to be completed within a given time limit, the duration spending on each question is very important. Our tutors focus on a training methodology that helps to develop a skill combining speed and accuracy.
