Queensland NAPLAN results released from today

STUDENTS across the country will be waiting with bated breath with this year's NAPLAN results to be made available in the coming weeks.

Queensland students will start receiving their results from today and distribution in other states and territories will start in coming weeks.

NAPLAN tests aim to provide a snapshot of literacy and numeracy achievements at a national level and at state and territory levels.

It assesses the capabilities of more than 1.1 million students in years 3, 5, 7 and 9 in five key areas of reading, persuasive writing, language conventions and numeracy.

Education Minister Christopher Pyne said the government was delivering on its commitment to providing faster turnaround of NAPLAN results which can only be of benefit to parents, students and teachers.

"It is very pleasing to see further reductions in turnaround times for NAPLAN results this year," he said.

"This is a significant improvement on what used to happen when results weren't available until late in the school year, meaning the opportunity to address any issues apparent in those results may have been lost."

The full NAPLAN National Report will be released in December and individual school information will also be available on the My School website in early 2016.
