NAPLAN / ICAS UNSW TESTS

NAPLAN (National Assessment Plan) Tests

 

In Years 3 and 5, students across Victoria take the National Assessment Plan (NAPLAN) tests on their knowledge of reading, writing, spelling and mathematics. This testing is part of a program that includes testing in Years 3, 5, 7 and 9.


Results from NAPLAN tests are sent to schools for distribution to parents. The personal report tells you how your child is achieving compared to:

 

  • other Victorian students in Year 3
  • the average score on the NAPLAN test
  • the standard expected of students at that year level when tested.


The results from these tests tell you how your child is progressing and where they can benefit from greater challenges or extra help.
