This book is designed for parents who want to help their children and for teachers who wish to prepare their class for the NAPLAN Tests. NAPLAN Tests are sat by Year 5 students Australia-wide. These tests are held in May every year. The tests are in literacy and numeracy.
In literacy there are three tests:
- Language Conventions – spelling, grammar and punctuation: there are around 50 questions in this test
- Reading – comprehension: there are around 35 questions in this test
- Writing - written expression: there is one piece of writing in this test
In the numeracy test mathematics is tested. There are 40 questions in this test.
Parents may also use these books separately from the tests and just as a general way of revising or when tutoring their children. This book is divided into sample questions and practice tests. It starts with samples of the literacy (Reading and Language Conventions) and numeracy questions. This is then followed by four practice tests for numeracy, four practice tests for reading and four practice tests for language conventions. There is a sample writing task and four practice writing tasks. Samples can be revised if the practice tests are not completed.
