HSC Minimum Standard

Learn how NAPLAN in Year 9 can affect the HSC minimum standard in literacy and numeracy.

Every year the National Assessment Program Literacy and Numeracy (NAPLAN) assesses students’ literacy and numeracy levels across Australian schools.

The tests are administered in May for students in Years 3, 5, 7 and 9

  • NAPLAN tests  are not pass or fail assessments but are instead used to help students develop the essential skills they need to progress through school and life with reading, writing, spelling, grammar and numeracy.

  • NAPLAN Online is rolling out across Australia from 2018. 

  • Parents can use NAPLAN to understand how their child is performing in comparison to other students in their child’s school, age group and across the country.

  • Schools and teachers use NAPLAN as one of many tools to measure student progress.
