Testing to take place online
Umina Beach Public School is preparing to be one of the first schools in NSW to undertake Naplan Online.
"Our school will be one of around 500 schools in NSW that will be transitioning to Naplan Online this year," said principal Ms Lyn Davis.
"This means our students in Years 3 and 5 will complete the Naplan assessments online this year rather than with pencil and paper.
"The Year 3 writing test will continue to be paper-based, but all other Year 3 Naplan tests will be online.
"Last year we participated in a school readiness test to prepare for the transition to Naplan Online.
"Our experience with the school readiness test confirmed that our school is ready," Ms Davis said.
She said a practice test would be held during March, where students would have an opportunity to become familiar with the types of questions they will be asked.
The online test itself will take place on line between May 15 to 25.
