NAPLAN - Applications for special print materials deadline

The deadline for Principals or NAPLAN coordinators to forward to BOSTES all requests for NAPLAN special print test materials, excluding black and white masters, is Friday 20 March.

The NAPLAN tests are available in the following alternate formats.

  • Large print – is produced in 3 different font sizes (18 pt, 24 pt and 36 pt) on A3 or A4 paper.
  • Braille – will be provided in contracted, single lined Braille unless otherwise specified.
  • Electronic test – will be provided for students with severe physical or vision disabilities who are unable to access a pencil-and-paper test using any of the other disability adjustments.
  • Black and white masters – which can be used for copying onto coloured paper, or for use with coloured glasses or overlays

All schools are sent a set of black and white masters for each cohort, so these materials do not need to be pre-ordered.

Order forms for large print, Braille and electronic test materials and the parent-carer consent forms for access to disability adjustments can be downloaded from the BOSTES NAPLAN webpage and from the PAR website.
