Principles of national online assessment

In July 2013, all Australian education ministers agreed to guiding principles for national online assessment. The principles provide strategic direction to ACARA for online delivery of NAPLAN.

The principles require online assessment to:

  • support quality teaching and learning
  • deliver better national and assessment information
  • broaden the curriculum coverage of assessments.

This followed education ministers’ previous commitment to trial an online platform for National Assessment Program – Civics and Citizenship (NAP–CC) in 2013.
