School moves to online NAPLAN


Kenmore SHS will be part of the first group of schools across the nation to deliver NAPLAN in the online format.

Some of the main benefits of students taking part in NAPLAN Online include: 
  • Assessments will use a tailored test design. Students will answer an initial set of questions and then be directed to subsequent sets of questions based on the accuracy of their responses. Students with a high number of questions correct will be directed to more challenging questions. Students who have a lower level of accuracy in the initial set of questions will be directed to questions that are less challenging.
  • Tailored testing will provide teachers and schools with more targeted and detailed information on their students’ performance on the tests.    
  • Use of a computer-based environment provides the opportunity to broaden the scope of the assessments.    
  • Delivery of assessments online will significantly reduce the time it takes to provide feedback to schools, students and parents.    
  • ACARA research into online assessment has shown that students have engaged well with computer-based tests.
