NAPLAN 2018 National Report released 

On Monday 8 April, we released the NAPLAN 2018 National Report (PDF 11.4 mb), which confirms the initial findings of the preliminary information we published in August 2018.

This report provides further information to the preliminary release: comparisons of performance by gender, Indigenous status, language background other than English, parental occupation, parental education, and school location.

“The report confirms that since 2008, there have been statistically significant gains in several domains and year levels, particularly at the primary school level,” said ACARA CEO, David de Carvalho.

The 2018 NAPLAN Test Incidents Report (PDF 155 kb) was also released. Test incidents can include cheating, security breaches and other ‘general breaches’.

Of the 68 test incidents substantiated in 2018, one was cheating, 20 were a security breach and 47 were a ‘general breach’. For comparison, there were 69 test incidents in 2017.

The number of reported test incidents is extremely small and does not affect overall NAPLAN results.
