About the Exam
The NAPLAN Year 7 exam is a grade assessment exam administered to 7th year students in Australia. It determines understanding of essential skills in areas of reading, writing, math and language inherent to their grade level. The test is broken down into these four domains and is entirely paper-based. The test is presented in a multiple-choice format except for the writing portion. Scoring is conducted on a scale with scores ranging from approximately 0 to 1000. Negative scores can also be awarded. Scales are developed to show student achievement over time; thus, a score in one domain in one year will have the same meaning in another year.
NAPLAN Year 7 Exam Preparation & Registration
You can adequately prepare to answer questions in all domains of the NAPLAN Year 7 exam by referring to this comprehensive study guide. Short lessons address details about such grammar and punctuation topics as suffixes and prefixes, vowels, singular and plural nouns, punctuation marks and their uses, verb tense and word patterns. Reading comprehension, listening and speaking communication processes, sentence structures, paragraph development and essay writing are other topics of discussion.
In the area of math, you will have the opportunity to review how to solve word problems, use bar graphs and pie charts, complete mathematical operations with rational numbers, work with decimals, convert fractions, calculate volume and apply algebraic formulas. You will also develop a deeper understanding of measuring distance, reading map legends and creating scale maps. Lessons can be printed and used as quick reference guides, and you can take self-assessment quizzes after studying each topic to determine how much you have retained and whether you are ready to take the NAPLAN Year 7 exam.
This exam is administered in the second week of May each year. There is no registration process necessary to take this exam. Students only need to be in that particular grade level in one of the schools selected to participate in this assessment for that year to be eligible to take this exam.
The NAPLAN Year 7 exam is administered by the Australian Curriculum, Assessment and Reporting Authority (ACARA), which is not affiliated with Study.com.
