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

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:
