NAPLAN Online Trials Delayed

Tuesday 2nd July / presented by Tom Reynolds

Education and Training Minister Sue Ellery has today welcomed the decision to delay the requirement that all schools complete NAPLAN in the online mode by one year to 2021.

The original timeline for all schools across Australia to complete NAPLAN online was by 2020,  following a trial period of the online platform; however in May, approximately 40,000 WA students from 300 schools encountered problems with the NAPLAN online platform.

Today at the Education Council meeting of the Federal Government and State and Territory Ministers, it was decided to delay the current transition plan by one year to 2021, with further consideration of the transition arrangements once the review into the connectivity issues has been completed.

State School Teachers' Union of Western Australia's Paul Bridge joined RTRFM to discuss this move in date for NAPLAN completion.
