Readiness activities

A range of NAPLAN Online readiness activities will be offered to Queensland schools in Semester 1, 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 transitioning to NAPLAN Online in 2020. This training will provide information to assist schools with the administration of the NAPLAN Online tests. It will focus on the 2020 national protocols that are specific to the online assessment mode and the functionality changes in the 2020 assessment platform.

There is no registration fee and principals and other key staff should attend.

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

The training will run from 23 January to 13 March 2020, the training is presented across 29 days with over 55 workshops. Registrations are now open.

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.
