NAPLAN 2022

The annual NAPLAN assessment is coming up once again and will be administered to students in Years 7 and 9 at Gympie State High School. For the first time in our history we will be completing the testing online and students will use their laptops.

Policies and procedures are in place to ensure personal information is protected in the online environment, a continuation of what happens with paper tests. (Click here for more information)

Parents who wish to withdraw their students from NAPLAN must complete the withdrawal form (click here​) and return it to the office by the due date. Please note that if a student has not returned a withdrawal form by the due date, and is present on the day, they are required to sit the test. These are the rules as set out by the Queensland Curriculum and Assessment Authority.

A practice test will take place on Wednesday the 20th April (Term 2, Week 1) in sessions 1 and 2.  Students who have already handed in their Parent withdrawal forms will not be required to sit this practice test.

 

Public Demonstration sites

Students, teachers, parents and carers are invited to use the public demonstration tests to familiarise themselves with the types of questions and related functionalities available in the online NAPLAN assessment.

 

Some of the key features include a range of question types, onscreen tools, timers and interactive navigation. Students are encouraged to try all the tests for their year level to practise the complete range of question formats available.
