VALID – Register your school

Registrations for VALID 2021 will open mid-term 1

Registration for VALID tests

Registration in the VALID program provides:

  • high quality syllabus-based assessment frameworks that describe levels of achievement against standards to inform school-based assessment practices
  • online multimedia assessment tools that provide diagnostic data and time efficient reports to inform planning, programming and assessment across learning stages
  • cohort level affective domain data from interest and engagement survey questions within each assessment
  • five hours of NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA) registered training that reinforces staff capability in making consistent judgements against syllabus standards
  • systems and processes to monitor student achievement of syllabus outcomes and content across stages.
  • external student assessment data that can be used in combination with school-based assessments to inform whole school planning processes.


There is no charge for government schools to register. A fee of $10 per student is applicable for non-government schools.

All students who participate in a VALID assessment will receive an electronic individualised student report outlining the level of understanding they demonstrated during the assessment.
