The NAPLAN AARA app is the QCAA’s ICT platform for submitting applications for QCAA-approved access arrangements and reasonable adjustment for students with disability.

The following QCAA Portal roles will give access to this app:

    Schools use fileShare to download and upload secure digital files. For NAPLAN, this will include:

    • accessing NAPLAN Assessment Platform login credentials (School PINs are located under the Reporting files tab in fileShare)
    • accessing student and school reports
    • accessing writing scripts

    Accessing QCAA Portal

    To access the applications needed for NAPLAN, your school will require specific individual staff to have the following access to the QCAA Portal.

    Access Management Organisation Administrator

    Each school should have a minimum of two Access Management Organisation Administrators. For security purposes, an Access Management Organisation Administrator cannot maintain their own account (e.g. they cannot assign roles to themselves). Two administrators ensure coverage when one administrator is unavailable. Very small schools should contact QCAA for advice if this is not possible.

    Users with this role have their principal's authorisation to manage staff access to the QCAA Portal for their school. They can:

    • create new accounts for staff
    • approve or deny access requests from staff who self-register
    • maintain application access for staff with an account.

    To request this role be assigned, please complete the Access Management Organisation Administrator request form.

    Note: If there are high volumes of applications, there may be longer than expected wait times for your application to be processed.
