The National Assessment Program – Literacy and Numeracy (NAPLAN) is an annual assessment for students in Years 3, 5, 7 and 9. It was introduced in 2008.

NAPLAN tests skills such as reading, writing, spelling and numeracy. The assessments are undertaken nationwide, every year, in the second full week in May.

The National Assessment Program is the measure through which governments, education authorities and schools can determine whether or not young Australians are meeting important educational outcomes.
