In May 2018, national literacy and numeracy assessments Year 3 were administered to students in Years 3, 5, 7 and 9 throughout Australia. This report shows your child’s achievement in those assessments.
These assessments provide a snapshot of your child’s achievement at a point in time. The information contained in this report should be considered together with school-based assessments and reports.
From 2018 to 2020, NAPLAN is moving from a paper test to an online test to provide more accurate and precise information about what students know and can do. This means that during this period some students take NAPLAN on paper, while others sit the tests online.
