We are responsible for the development of the National Assessment Program (NAP), which includes the National Assessment Program – Literacy and Numeracy (NAPLAN) and the 3-yearly NAP sample assessments in science literacy, civics and citizenship, and ICT literacy.

These assessments test students’ knowledge of what is in the Australian Curriculum and tell us whether our students are developing the essential skills – predominantly literacy and numeracy – they will need in life.

More information about the NAP program is at the NAP website, including:
