NAPLAN is moving from May to March from 2023

Did you know NAPLAN is moving to Term 1? The new NAPLAN testing window for 2023 is now from 15-27 March. This means the results will be in the hands of education authorities and school systems earlier in the year to inform teaching and learning programs throughout the rest of the school year.
