NAPLAN testing in 2018 was moved to an online test platform and Westport Campus was amongst the first schools in the state to participate.
As more schools are moving to the Online NAPLAN tests, we have been asked again to participate in Practice Tests for NAPLAN which involve Years 7 and 9 students completing practice NAPLAN type tests online.
These tests are scheduled to occur during Week 10 of this term, April 2 to April 5 and will consist of students completing one test, 45 minutes in length involving Reading, Language and Numeracy.
We will not have access to the results of the tests; it is simply a practice test to ensure the systems in place are adequate to ensure the successful and efficient transition to the NAPLAN Online platform.
Your child will be advised of when he/she will participate in these tests in the coming weeks and does not need to complete any preparation nor bring any special equipment.
As the tests include listening to instructions and questions, headphones will be provided, but we encourage your child to bring their own set of headphones if desired.
Feel free to contact the NAPLAN Coordinators, Mrs Stewart or Mrs Browning on 6583 6400 if you have any further questions.
