NAPLAN: School readiness

Schools administering NAPLAN can prepare for testing by participating in training and national preparation activities.

Technical requirements

Schools can check the minimum technical specifications required for their current equipment, students’ BYO devices and any new purchases at:

Locked down browser for 2024

The 2024 Locked Down Browser (LDB) is expected to be available for download on the Online National Assessment Platform in late 2023. Previous versions of the application should be uninstalled on all devices. The latest version of the locked down browser is required to be installed on all devices to be used for NAPLAN testing, including back-up devices.

Test Administrator training kit

This Test Administrator (TA) training kit has been created for schools to familiarise their Test Administrators with the Assessment Platform used to deliver NAPLAN.

The TA training kit is located on the QCAA resources page.

Practice tests

Practice tests are available for students and schools participating in NAPLAN. The purpose of the practice test is to support the familiarisation of students and test administrators with the test format, question types and online testing experience prior to NAPLAN testing in March. These tests can also be used to support schools with their technical readiness checks.

Opportunities for schools to conduct a practice test will be available in the Training Environment of the Online National Assessment Platform  in Term 1, with students completing the test/s using the latest locked down browser.

Schools use the Test administration mini-handbook for teachers to administer the practice test. Other resources required for administering the practice tests are located on the QCAA resources page.

The practice tests are conducted in the Training Environment.
