The National Assessment Program - Literacy and Numeracy (NAPLAN) is an assessment that all Australian children in Years 3, 5, 7 and 9 sit in May each year. It is important as it helps the Australian Government and individual schools and teachers to make informed decisions about planning and resources to improve student outcomes. For more information, tips and sample assessments and reports head to the NAPLAN for Parents or the ACARA websites. NAPLAN
