Variations to test dates for classes or groups of students
ACARA has advised that only schools with compelling reasons that are outside of their control will be granted approval to vary test dates. Schools are reminded that the timetables for NAPLAN test dates up to 2020 are available on the VCAA website. As previously noted, schools that book a camp in test week will not be granted approval to vary their NAPLAN test dates.
