National Assessment Program - Literacy and Numeracy
All students in Years 3, 5, 7 and 9 will participate in the NAPLAN assessment from 12 May - 14 May 2009. This program will assess the literacy and numeracy learning of students in all Australian schools.
The results of the tests will provide important information to schools about what each student can do and will be used to support teaching and learning programs. Parents will receive a report indicating their child's level of achievement. Each student's level of achievement will be reported against the agreed national benchmarks of student achievement.
The tests will be conducted across Australia on the same days for all students.
