Perhaps the most burning question on some parents’ minds is “Will NAPLAN happen in 2021?”.
The answer is yes. As you may recall, Investigator College was amongst the first schools in the state to conduct NAPLAN online. We will be doing so again in 2021 after a period of practice for both staff and students.
All schools conducting NAPLAN testing online are required to participate in the Nationally Coordinated Practice Test (NCPT) on Thursday 25 March at 11.00am SA time. The NCPT is an important event that confirms readiness to administer NAPLAN Online at the school, jurisdiction and national levels. The practice test runs for 45 minutes and student performance is not assessed. Please note that not all classes will sit this test.
The official NAPLAN “testing window” is Tuesday 11 May – Friday 21 May. Classes will be sitting tests at differing times during this window and a detailed timetable will be sent home in due course. If you have any concerns regarding NAPLAN, please do not hesitate to contact me at the College.
