Australian Education Ministers have agreed to critical improvements to the National Assessment Program – Literacy and Numeracy (NAPLAN) giving teachers the additional information they need about student performance earlier in the year.

From next year, NAPLAN, which traditionally has been held in Term 2 of the school year, will be held in Term 1.

Bringing the test forward puts information in teachers’ hands sooner, allowing for more targeted support for students to ensure they are gaining important literacy and numeracy skills.
