Civics and Citizenship
The National Sample Assessment in Civics and Citizenship commenced in 2004. Samples of Year 6 and Year 10 students participate in this assessment.
Every three years samples of Year 6 and Year 10 students from across Australia are tested on their civic knowledge and understanding and the skills and values needed for active citizenship.
In 2013 the NAP - Civics and Citizenship assessment will be delivered on line for the first time. The assessment will be undertaken by approximately 5900 Year 6 students from 328 schools and 5760 Year 10 students from 320 schools. Students from government, Catholic and independent schools will participate in the assessment.
