Dear Parents/Guardians,

In Week 8, Year 7 and 9 students will complete a Reading and Numeracy test, modelled on the style and practice of NAPLAN testing. Whilst we appreciate that this is a very busy year, full of uncertainties, these tests allow the school to capture valuable data, which helps us inform Personal Plans and specialised tutorials. It also provides teachers with a deeper understanding of student needs.

Two tests will be completed over the course of Independent Learning Time in Week 8. The first is a Reading test, 65 minutes, 50 questions. The second is a Numeracy test, 40 minutes, 40 questions. Students will complete the tests in our Tech Hubs on Macbooks. Every teacher has been informed of these tests and understands the need for flexibility regarding assessment and task work.

Finally, these tests are not government mandated tests. They are designed by the literacy and numeracy team at Catholic Education. The results are used for school purposes only.
