In May 2018, 83 Queensland state, Catholic and independent schools joined their interstate counterparts in moving to NAPLAN Online.

These schools, supported by the Queensland Curriculum and Assessment Authority, were supported through training and successfully undertook readiness activities during 2017 and 2018 prior to moving online.

Queensland schools will continue to transition to NAPLAN Online in 2019 and 2020. From May 2020, Years 3, 5, 7 and 9 students in all Australian schools will use NAPLAN Online unless circumstances prevent them from doing so. Alternatives will be in place for the students at those schools unable to sit tests online.
