Readiness activities

A range of NAPLAN Online readiness activities are offered to Queensland schools in Semester 1, 2019. Schools that register will be supported through flexible training opportunities including web conferences, role based workshops and presentations, support material and school visits.

Training and support

The Queensland Curriculum Assessment Authority (QCAA) are offering a full training day for Queensland schools in February and March 2019. The training is presented over 27 days with 46 workshops to accommodate state, independent and Catholic schools. This refresher training will provide information to assist schools with the administration of the NAPLAN Online tests. It will focus on the 2019 national protocols that are specific to the online assessment mode and the functionality changes in the 2019 assessment platform. 

There is no registration fee and principals and other key staff should attend (maximum of three participants).

The QCAA training day is aimed at schools that have previously completed a readiness test and are ready to move online. 

Transitioning schools have access to the national training environment to support staff readiness. Students, parents, caregivers and other members of school communities are invited to use ACARA’s public demonstration of the online assessment platform. ​​
