2015

The NAPLAN test dates for 2015 are Tuesday 12 May, Wednesday 13 May and Thursday 14 May.

All schools must ensure that the week beginning 11 May 2015 is set aside for the national tests. Do not schedule other major school activities during this time.

Schools that have a gazetted holiday on any of the scheduled test days must apply to the QCAA for a variation by completing the Variance request form that will be available via the NAPLAN portal early in 2015.
