Training

Training to support schools transitioning to NAPLAN Online in 2018 is available 12 February–9 March. This includes eLearning modules, and Adobe Connect and face-to-face training sessions delivered by NAPLAN Online training facilitators.

The type of training required depends on the particular role that individual staff will be carrying out in NAPLAN Online.

Face-to-face training is available for all NAPLAN coordinators and test administrators from schools transitioning in 2018. Staff that attended face-to-face training in 2017 may instead choose to participate in Adobe Connect refresher sessions.

All staff are encouraged to access the eLearning modules.
