Please find our 2023 NAPLAN Timetable below.
NAPLAN Online is scheduled for Term 1 this year in a move to allow student learning data to be accessible for schools earlier in the year. While presenting a shorter preparation time, our students and teachers in Years 3 and 5 will be well prepared for the national assessment between the 15th and 21st of March. (Term 1, weeks 7 & 8).
For parents interested, there is a public demonstration website (https://nap.edu.au/online-assessment/public-demonstration-site) available to students to familiarise themselves with the NAPLAN Online platform. Students in years 3 and 5 will begin practising on this website at school in the coming weeks.
The NAPLAN INFORMATION FOR CARERS AND PARENTS has been sent home if you are looking for more information, or can be found on the NAPLAN website.
At this stage, parents of children in years 3 and 5 need to begin technical preparations. This includes:
Years 3 & 5
- Make sure your child’s iPad has the updated NAPLAN – NAP Locked Down Browser has been installed – https://apps.apple.com/au/app/nap-locked-down-browser/id1086807255
- Have a set of working headphones (please make sure these are working with your child’s iPad and cover)
Year 5 only
- CPS provide keyboards that connect to all iPads with a lightning input (old Apple cords). If your child’s iPad has the new, universal input – it is advised to organise a keyboard that works with this input (or Bluetooth)
Please note that if you cannot meet any of the technical requirements listed above, contact your child’s teacher, or Luke Johnson, Deputy Principal to arrange the use of school equipment.
Further detail, including a detailed timetable, will be communicated in the week 5 newsletter.
