NAPLAN Results 2022 Release Date

Results of the tests for the National Assessment Program are reported in a number of ways, including national reports, individual student reports, and school-level reporting on the My Schoolwebsite.

NAP are not pass/fail tests.

NAPLAN results

NAPLAN test results provide information on how students are performing in literacy and numeracy and support improvements in teaching and learning. The data from NAPLAN test results gives schools and systems the ability to measure their students’ achievements against national minimum standards and student performance in other states and territories.

Preliminary results for schools and students who completed NAPLAN online are provided in the student and school summary report (SSSR). View: How to interpret the SSSR (PDF 5 MB).

Reports on individual student performance are provided to all students and parents/carers by state and territory test administration authorities.

ACARA will publish full NAPLAN 2022 results in the final national report, which is expected to be published towards the end of the year. The interactive report will be updated with 2022 data when the final national report is released.

NAP sample assessment results

After the NAP sample assessments have taken place, a public report is released providing a national overview of student performance against the relevant standards. The report provides an analysis of various findings across states and territories and student sub-groups, for example: the relative achievements of boys/girls; metropolitan students/rural students and Indigenous/non-Indigenous students.

A technical report is also released, which provides detailed information about the statistical and measurement methods and procedures used. This enables valid interpretations and transparent evaluations of the reported outcomes.

Individual student reports are not provided for NAP sample assessments. Participating schools receive a basic report about the performance of their students.

Ramadan and NAPLAN

NAPLAN testing dates are established in consultation with state, territory and federal authorities, are usually set for a number of years in advance, and accommodate different term dates in all states and territories.

The timing of Ramadan and Eid is determined by the lunar calendar (phases of the moon), and the dates for these events change year to year and may, at times, fall during NAPLAN.

Assistance and flexibility are available to support participation in these instances.
