The National Assessment Program – Literacy and Numeracy (NAPLAN) test is an annual assessment given to students in Years 3, 5, 7 and 9 in Australia. The test measures students’ abilities in reading, writing, language conventions (spelling, grammar and punctuation) and numeracy. The results of the NAPLAN test can provide valuable information for parents, caregivers, and educators to understand a student’s performance and areas for improvement. In this blog, we will discuss how to interpret and use the NAPLAN test results for your child’s success.
Setting goals for your child’s future performance is one of the most effective ways to utilise the NAPLAN test results. The test results enable you to have a clear overview of your child’s level of skills and potential areas for improvement. By recognising the subjects where your child did well and the areas where they need improvement, you can set practical and realistic goals for your child.
For example, if your child scored well in reading but needs improvement in writing, you can set a goal for them to improve their writing skills. By setting goals, you can help your child to concentrate on their weaknesses and enhance their overall performance.
