This year the National Assessment Program Literacy and Numeracy (NAPLAN) for year 3, 5, 7 and 9 takes place from May 14 – 24th which is Week 3 & 4 Term 2.

Craigburn is one of a large number of schools that will be participating in NAPLAN Online for the first time. All assessments will be done online by students, apart from Year 3 Writing which will continue in the paper based form.

NAPLAN Online tests include a range of question formats and interactive features. Students answer questions by clicking, typing and dragging; some questions include audio or interactive tools; all questions can be reviewed and answered, or flagged and returned to later.

All schools in Australia participate in the assessment program at a similar time. There are four components:- Language Conventions; Writing; Reading and Numeracy. All students in years 3, 5 and 7 will participate in the assessment program.

If there are parents who have questions regarding their child sitting the test, please contact Paul Luke or Rob Warncken prior to the test to discuss this. This includes parents wishing to withdraw their child from a part or all of the test.
