The Mini-tests contain example questions to allow everyone to become familiar with the various types of features NAPLAN Online uses. For example, elements of the online tests include interactive navigation and features such as drag and drop.
There are also interaction tests, which walk students through how to interact with question types with additional supporting text, and accessible versions of the interaction tests which displays different types of questions based on adjustments that can be made for students with disability.
