NAPLAN Resources

The Maximising Test Results: NAPLAN*-style Literacy series includes annotated activity pages that break down the key skills and knowledge assessed in a typical Year's 3 and 5 NAPLAN* tests. Students are guided through worksheet questions that include tips such as ‘things to know’ and ‘hints’, helping them to understand the test format and what each question is asking. The books also feature two full-length tests that can be photocopied and given to students to prepare them for the yearly NAPLAN* tests. The activities are designed to help develop and refine skills required to achieve good results as well as familiarising them with the multiple choice test format. The tests can be used as homework, revision or to supplement ongoing assessment. All answers are provided.
