Year 7 and 9 NAPLAN individual reports and the explanatory brochure will be given to students in Homeroom on Wednesday 19 September. While the test represents a single snapshot on a specific day, it does provide useful information about both the group of students and about individual students.
The explanatory brochure is useful and further information can be accessed here: http://www.nap.edu.au/docs/default-source/default-document-library/naplan-2018-information-brochure-for-parents-and-carers.pdf?sfvrsn=2. This brochure provides background information about the Individual Student Reports: https://k10outline.scsa.wa.edu.au/home/assessment/testing/naplan/parents/results-reporting.
It is important for students to achieve specific levels in Year 9 NAPLAN if they are to avoid having to sit the Online Literacy and Numeracy Assessment (OLNA) required for Year 12 WACE Graduation. Information on these requirements is regularly presented at Information Evenings and in Education Plus classes, and can also be found here: https://senior-secondary.scsa.wa.edu.au/assessment/olna/students-parents-carers.
