Students in Years 3, 5, 7 and 9 sit for NAPLAN in May every year.
The tests are administered over three days. Find out the test dates.
For students in Years 3 and 5, there are four tests covering numeracy, reading, writing and language conventions (spelling, punctuation and grammar).
For students in Years 7 and 9, there are four tests covering numeracy, reading, writing and language conventions (spelling, punctuation and grammar). The numeracy test has two parts – a calculator allowed test and a non-calculator test.
Test results and student reports are released in August.
The Australian Curriculum, Assessment and Reporting Authority (ACARA) is responsible for the central management of NAPLAN.
Education Standards is the NSW Test Administration Authority and is responsible for administering NAPLAN tests in NSW schools.

In 2017, all NSW schools will continue with paper-based delivery of the NAPLAN tests. Schools and parents will be advised early 2017 when NSW schools will transition to NAPLAN Online.
This approach follows agreement by the Education Ministers for a three-year transition to NAPLAN Online from 2017.
