I don’t want to over-emphasise the NAPLAN tests, but I have made a few interesting observations about the paper based 2018 papers.
As I have noted in the past, literacy – particularly vocabulary and graphics – play a major part in NAPLAN numeracy tests. I’ve compiled listings of which elements of these appeared in the 2018 NAPLAN test. It might be an idea just to check whether your class could handle these elements of literacy.
