NSW transition approach

In 2019, schools across Australia continued the move from paper NAPLAN tests to NAPLAN Online. In NSW, more than 50% of Department schools have transitioned to NAPLAN Online.

The same preparation approach used in 2018 and 2019 will continue for schools transitioning to NAPLAN Online in 2020. Preparation activities for NSW schools include training, participation in a school readiness test during Term 3 2019, and a practice test during 23 March to 9 April 2020 (including a Coordinated practice test on Monday 23 March 2020).

NESA will provide more information about preparation activities to all schools.
