Students in Years 3, 5, 7 and 9 in transitioning schools will participate in online NAPLAN testing between 15 and 25 May  2018.  The test window for NAPLAN Online has been increased to nine days to allow schools more flexibility in scheduling the tests.

All transitioning schools have access to a training environment and students can become familiar with the test item types via the public demonstration website.
