tests the skills that are essential for every child to progress through school
and life, such as reading, writing, spelling, grammar and numeracy. It is
important to remember that NAPLAN tests are not pass/fail tests. NAPLAN tests
provide very valuable information, but there are no consequences for individual
students for poor or good performance. At the classroom level it is one of a
number of important tools used by teachers to measure student progress and how
your child is progressing against national standards. This information allows
for additional intervention if necessary to ensure your child progresses at a
rate where they can fully participate in all aspects of the curriculum.
NAPLAN does not replace, but rather complements, assessments run by your
child's classroom teacher throughout the year.
