NAPLAN assesses students on numeracy, reading, writing and language conventions (spelling and grammar). It is conducted nationally for students in Year 3, 5, 7 and 9. We will be supporting students to manage their time under test conditions and with the literacy demands within the tests. At BMPS we use the NAPLAN as an independent assessment of our children. This enables us to be compared to the state and similar schools.
