Curriculum - NAPLAN

The Victorian Curriculum and Assessment Authority (VCAA) is responsible for the National Assessment Program - Literacy and Numeracy (NAPLAN) in Victoria.

 

NAPLAN is an annual assessment program for students in Years 3, 5, 7 and 9. It has been a part of the school calendar since 2008. 

 

NAPLAN tests are undertaken nationwide every year. In 2016 it will be 10th - 12th May. 

NAPLAN is made up of tests in four areas (or ‘domains’):

  • Reading
  • Writing
  • Language Conventions (spelling, grammar and punctuation)
  • Numeracy

 

The results of the tests provide information for students, parents, teachers and principals about student achievement, which can be used to inform teaching and learning programs. NAPLAN tests provide point-in-time information regarding student progress in literacy and numeracy and are intended to complement teacher judgement and the wide range of formal and informal testing programs that are already used in schools. As with all single assessments, NAPLAN test results are not intended to be used in isolation from other school-based assessment programs.

The Australian Curriculum, Assessment and Reporting Authority (ACARA) have responsibility for the central management of the NAPLAN and a Test Administration Authority (TAA) in each state or territory is responsible for the implementation of the tests.
