Tailored tests

Transitioning NAPLAN tests online makes a tailored test design possible.

Instead of the static approach of paper-based tests, tailored tests better align with student's abilities.

All students attempt the same number of test items in the same amount of time. However, based on their responses to previous items, the tailored test design delivers groups of items more aligned to their individual ability.

Trials by Australian Curriculum, Assessment and Reporting Authority (ACARA) suggest that students are more engaged with online tests as they can answer more questions that are targeted to their ability. As a result, teachers will be provided with results that deliver more information about what each student can do rather than what they cannot do.

The tailored test design is one of the significant opportunities created by online assessment.
