Tasmanian students affected by server issues that plagued the first day of NAPLAN Online testing will be given the opportunity to take the test again.
ACARA, the body that manages NAPLAN testing across the country, with support from state education departments, announced on Friday it would allow students to take the tests again if they were affected.
"Schools have worked hard to prepare for NAPLAN Online, so it is important to ensure that all students have a fair opportunity to demonstrate what they know and can do in NAPLAN," a spokesperson said.
"Participation will be optional. Students who do not wish to retake tests will not be required to do so. The result of the second test is the result that will be recorded for those students for NAPLAN 2019."
About 50 per cent of Australian students have migrated to NAPLAN Online this year, with the other 50 per cent expected to migrate in 2020.
Those who were undertaking NAPLAN Online this year experienced connectivity issues and time reductions in their tests on the first day of tests on Monday.
Some students lost work and others had to submit incomplete tests as a result of the server issues.
The re-sit tests will be retaken on May 28 and ACARA will consult with states and territories and details of the implementation of those tests will be known early next week.
In the first week of NAPLAN online, more than 1.5 million online tests have been submitted.
NAPLAN Online replaces the traditional pen-and-paper tests, which have been criticised in the past.
