    NAPLAN 2019http://www.staroftheseacleveland.qld.edu.au/Latest News/Pages/NAPLAN-2019.aspxNAPLAN 2019<p>In Week Four of Term Two, all students in Years Three and Five will participate in NAPLAN testing. Over three days, students will complete national assessments in Reading, Writing, Conventions of Language and Numeracy. Results may be used to review and improve teaching programs, review support offered to schools, discuss  progress with parents or for high school applications.<br></p><p>NAPLAN assesses literacy and numeracy skills that students are already learning through the school curriculum. Teachers will ensure that students are familiar with the test formats and will provide appropriate support and guidance. Excessive preparation is not useful and can lead to unnecessary anxiety. If you have any questions about your child's preparation for NAPLAN, you are encouraged to make a time to speak with their teacher.<br></p><p>NAPLAN tests are constructed to give students an opportunity to demonstrate skills they have  learned over time through the school curriculum, and NAPLAN test days should be treated as just another routine event on the school calendar. The best way you can help your child prepare for NAPLAN is to reassure them that NAPLAN tests are just one part of their school program, and to urge them to simply do the best they can on the day.<br></p><p>If you would like any more information, please visit: <a href="http://www.nap.edu.au/" target="_blank">www.nap.edu.au​</a><br></p><p style="text-align:center;"><img src="/Latest%20News/PublishingImages/naplan-2long.jpg" alt="naplan-2long.jpg" style="margin:5px;width:561px;" /><br><br><br></p>
