NAPLAN 2020 Cancelled

Education ministers met today and decided that NAPLAN will be cancelled for 2020.

This decision was made so that school leaders, teachers and support staff can focus on the wellbeing of students and prepare for the continuity of education, including working on online and remote learning options.

This decision means that the scheduled testing of NAPLAN Online platform – the Coordination Practice Test (CPT) – scheduled for Monday 23 March will not go ahead.

The ministers thank every school for their hard work in preparing for the CPT and all the preparations for NAPLAN in general.

Today’s communique from the Education Council is available on the ACARA website and can be accessed here.

Please contact the AISSA NAPLAN Team (8179 1400) regarding any queries related to this correspondence.
