Dear Parent community,
An announcement has been made by the Education
Minister Kate Jones for Queensland state schools to delay the implementation of
NAPLAN Online. Our school had nominated to trial the NAPLAN online this year
for all our Years 7 and 9 students
Our students will continue to undertake NAPLAN,
in a paper-based format in 2017, as we have done in previous years.
A delay means further testing of the assessment
platform to ensure that the online tests are 100% ready to go for 2018.
We have been able to provide valuable feedback
to help improve the platform that our students will use when they undertake the
online assessments in 2018.
NAPLAN will continue to be a point in time
assessment that gives us information on how our students are doing with
essential literacy and numeracy skills.
We will continue to implement our current
curriculum programs ensuring students are developing paper and digital skills
in literacy and numeracy.
We understand that the Minister has made this
decision to put the best interests of our students first.
