It’s that time of year, NAPLAN online testing will begin next week!

For the first time, Hedland SHS students will sit their NAPLAN testing online. This year the students will start their testing on Tuesday 15 May until Friday 18 May.

The benefits of testing in this format is it uses tailored testing, where the test automatically adapts to the student performance which will mean more precise results available for teachers and schools.

To get an idea of what the tests look like please visit the public demonstration site here
