While we were well prepared for the on-line testing, having conducted a trial in Term 1 to ensure the connectivity on NASHS site could handle the required bandwidth and teachers were trained in conducting the on-line tests, unfortunately the NAPLAN education servers experienced overload when students across Australia logged on.

The issues at a national level were quickly resolved and on Wednesday students were able to complete NAPLAN Reading on line with no issues.

Affected Year 9 students will be given an opportunity to re sit the Writing test if they experienced issues.

By the end of this week Year 7 and Year 9 students will have completed NAPLAN on line in Writing, Reading, Language Conventions and Numeracy.
