Equip students with the ICT capabilities and problem solving skills to prepare them for the future world of work

NAPLAN Demostration Tests

These demonstration tests are not tailored tests. Demonstration tests do not include branching between testlets or branching messages. In NAPLAN Online tests, branching messages (PDF 1.56 mb) between testlets advise students whether they may go back to previous testlets to change their answers, or not. This will not affect their branching but will affect their final score.

The demonstration tests will work with many devices and browsers but not all. Before starting, check if your device or browser meets the minimum technical requirements to ensure the tests function and display as intended.

The links below take you to demonstration tests for conventions of language (grammar, punctuation, and spelling), numeracy, reading and writing for each NAPLAN test year level: 3, 5, 7 and 9. As all Year 3 students will complete the writing test on paper, there is no Year 3 demonstration test for writing.
