As children progress through their school years, it is very important that checks are made along the way to
see how well they are learning the essential skills of reading, writing and mathematics – skills that will set
them upon the path to success as adults.
NAPLAN is a point-in-time assessment that allows parents to see how their child is progressing in literacy
and numeracy against the national standard and compared with their peers throughout Australia.
This year Logan Reserve will be participating in an online version of the NAPLAN test. For many children,
online NAPLAN tests will be more engaging.
You can support your child to understand that the questions they attempt will be more suited to their ability,
relieving any concerns they may have, along with the fact that they will be using a computer or device. This
is because NAPLAN Online tailored test design starts with a standard set of questions, then as your child
responds to questions, moves to questions that are suited to their ability.

A public demonstration site is available where you and your child can view the sorts of ICT skills that are
used in questions they encounter with NAPLAN Online. The demonstration site does not tailor to a
student's ability though. The questions are just provided to show what a test might look like.
