The Assessment Platform enables assessments to be delivered online to students nationally. It will be used to support delivery of the National Assessment Program (NAP), and in particular National Assessment Program for Literacy and Numeracy (NAPLAN) and NAP sample assessments in science literacy, civics and citizenship and information and communication technology.
It will deliver assessments for up to 1 million students across 10,000 schools simultaneously for NAPLAN Online.
The platform’s technical components include:
The platform adheres to high levels of data privacy and security, including Information Security Manual compliance. It has undergone an Information Security Registered Assessors Program (IRAP) assessment for certification.
The Australian Government Department of Education and Training is funding Education Services Australia to provide and develop the Assessment Platform to support delivery of the NAP and NAPLAN, including related trialing and research assessments.
Beginning in late 2014 the majority of the platform has now been developed and tested by jurisdictions. It has been used operationally to run NAP Sample, ACARA research and item trials and is due to be used for NAPLAN Online in 2018.
The project includes extensive national consultation with states and territories, via the Online Assessment Working Group and Program Managers Working Group for NAPLAN Online, to ensure that jurisdictions are informed and ready to integrate their existing systems and processes. It also includes consultation with ACARA, who are responsible for delivering NAP assessment and reporting services, including research projects.
