A range of NAPLAN Online readiness activities will be offered to Queensland schools to transition in 2020. Schools 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) will offer training days at different venues across the state. This training is for all state, independent and Catholic schools who are new to NAPLAN Online.
The training days will run from 17 June to 21 August, the training is presented across 38 days with over 82 workshops and registration for the workshop are now opened.
The training provides an introduction to the assessment platform and information to assist each school to successfully participate in the School Readiness Test (SRT) from 18 August to 20 September 2019. The SRT will be conducted within a test window and the purpose is to enable schools to collect technical information so that necessary preparations can be made for May 2020.
Principals and NAPLAN Coordinators must attend one of these face-to-face workshops and registration is limited to these 2 participants. There is no cost to attend the workshops.
