NAP Opt-in assessments - Expression of Interest

From 2024 Australian schools can enrol Year 6 and/or Year 10 students to take part in NAP Opt-in assessment, starting with Science Literacy. 

Schools taking part in NAP Opt-in assessments will be able to: 
  • Measure student performance against national standards in key curriculum areas beyond literacy and numeracy.
  • Use the results (available only to the participating school) to review, plan and adapt teaching and learning programs.
  • Run the assessments at a time that suits them in the testing window. There is no fee for schools registering to take part in this assessment.
