We are responsible for the development of the National Assessment Program (NAP).

This includes the National Assessment Program – Literacy and Numeracy (NAPLAN) and three-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.

For the most up-to-date and comprehensive information about the NAP program, visit the NAP website.

Historic information about the NAP program can be found on our website:

Also see NAP resources:

  • infographics (coming soon)
  • school perspectives on NAPLAN: principals of schools that were recognised as achieving high gains in NAPLAN 2017 shared their stories with us.
