NAPLAN test dates

2023 NAPLAN test timetable

On 16 March 2022, it was announced that from next year, NAPLAN will be held earlier in the year to give teachers and parents important information about a student's skills and capability sooner, so that more targeted support can be delivered to improve literacy and numeracy skills throughout the year.

In 2023, NAPLAN will be held during Term 1 from Wednesday 15 March to Monday 27 March.

A detailed timetable and test sequence order will be published here once it has been released by ACARA. In the meantime you can view the 2023 key dates on the NAP website: NAP website's Key dates page.

It is important to note that with this change to the NAPLAN test timetable there may be some clashes with the new test dates. We urge you to plan ahead to ensure that the NAPLAN tests can be successfully conducted between the new specified times in 2023. This includes the purchasing of devices (which will need to be actioned before the end of this school year) and planning your school resources to accommodate the revised test dates.
